I am Full Professor of International Law and the chair of the international law group at Bocconi, where I arrived in 2018. I am also an Honorary Professor at University College London (UCL), where from 2014 to 2018 I was Professor of Public International Law. Previously I taught for fifteen years at the University of Cambridge (1999–2014), where I was a Senior Lecturer in Law, the Deputy Director of the Lauterpacht Centre for International Law, and a Fellow of Magdalene College. I am joint General Editor of the Oxford University Press series Oxford Monographs in International Law.
I am a generalist public international lawyer with a variety of specialist interests. I have published widely on canonical topics of public international law, such as the sources of international law, the law of treaties, the relationship between international and domestic law, statehood and admission to the United Nations, title to territory, jurisdiction and immunities, and state responsibility, as well on topics in the subfields of international criminal law, international humanitarian law, international human rights law, and international cultural heritage law.
