Dr Carlo Petrucci joined the School of Law of University of Essex in September 2016. In October 2013 he took up the position of Research Associate atCardiff School of Law and Politics in the research project Law, Science and Interests in European policy-making (LASI), a research funded by the European Research Council and led by Prof. Stijn Smismans. Carlo holds a degree in law at the Università degli Studi di Milano. He conducted his postgraduate research studies at the University of Manchester and University of Birmingham. He was a Postgraduate Teaching Assistant at the University of Birmingham from 2009 to 2011 and a lecturer in EU law and EU competition law at Salford Law School in 2012 and 2013. My research interests range from EU law in general, especially EU policy-making, to market regulation, with particular reference to competition law. I am also interested in political theory, philosophy of economics, and political science (public policy, scientific expertise, and epistemic communities in policy-making).
