After completing my LL.M. in International Business Law from the University of Manchester, I started my career practising at a law firm performing legal research. I was always interested in academia, therefore I started to teach and at a later stage lead the Law and Business Programme in Access to Higher Education Diploma course at Thames Valley University. I completed the teaching qualification, Certificate in Education from the same institution and was a former member of the Institute of Learning. I feel passionate about equality and justice; therefore I joined Amnesty International and started my research in this area as a PhD student at Brunel Law School. My research aims to examine the implementation of the Race Directive on the Roma minority in post-communist accession states to the European Union (EU) who imposed ‘conditionality to anti-discrimination acquis’. I presented a Conference paper at the University of Pittsburgh, USA, 7th Annual Graduate Student Conference on the European Union on ‘Crisis, Continuity, and Change in the European Union’ in March 2012.
