At Birmingham, she was also Deputy Director of the Institute for German Studies. Her research interests include territorial politics in Europe, comparative federalism and political communication. She is a member of the newly established UACES network on “Communicating Europe”. Since 2006, she has been acting as an advisor to the EU Committee of the Regions’  Commission for Citizenship, Governance, Institutional and External Affairs (CIVEX).
