Many of the skills required in my daily job, from sound political and legal analysis to clear writing, from negotiation to public speaking, are skills that I honed during my time at the LSE.

After graduating from the LSE’s European Institute (MSc EU Politics, class of 2017), I moved to Brussels, where, after a short experience in the private sector working in public affairs and strategic communications, I joined the European Commission.  I started my career in the European Commission as a trainee in the Directorate-General for Migration and Home Affairs (DG HOME) and for the past five years, I have worked in different roles and policy areas: ranging from migration policy and enlargement negotiations to digital and industrial policies. I am currently back in DG HOME as a Policy Officer, working on external aspects of the EU’s migration policy, in particular visa policy.
