Dr Rozbicka joined the department in 2015, having previously worked as a post-doc and lecturer at the Ruhr University Bochum, Germany. Prior to coming to the United Kingdom, dr Rozbicka held appointments at the University of Victoria, BC, Canada, visiting researcher post at the Institute of European Studies,  Vrije Universiteit Brussel, Belgium, and finished her PhD at the European University Institute, Florence, Italy.

Dr Rozbicka's research agenda focuses on two main topics. The main area of research circulates around participation of interest groups in the European and national policy-making and transposition processes; which includes questions like: How influential are interest groups in the politics? Access routes for lobbyists and their effectiveness? And, regulation of interest groups access to policy-makers. The second strand of research focuses on the regulation of the live music industry in the UK and EU. The main issues there are: influence of Brexit on the live music industry and stakeholders participation in the regulation.  Next to these, she works on: E-democracy and environmental policy-making.
