Scientist (Assistant Professor rank) at the Centre for Comparative Law, Faculty of Law, Charles University and J.S.D. Candidate at the Yale Law School.
His research interest includes constitutional and democratic theory, European law, comparative constitutional law, European decision-making processes, and judicialization of governance. He has also been involved in European private law projects ranging from torts to antitrust matters.
In his dissertation, he examined the way interactions among constitutional courts in the European Union have shaped the content of the common European constitution and how such practices gain normativity as well as democratic legitimacy. Special attention was paid to the impact of the Eastern Enlargement of the EU and the role of new Member States’ courts in the common enterprise.
In his current research funded by Charles University PRIMUS grant, he looks into the constitutional origins of European integration and argues for a democratic constitutional interpretation that posits an existence of foundational constitutional principles that are expression of self-determination of Europeans and are superior to and independent of the mandate given to the EU by the Member States.
