Her research focuses on latest decision-making practices that seek to overcome inconsistencies within different models of judicial review. In particular, interests her the distinction between thesis and case as different focal points for each decision, which enables a broader scope of the constitutional adjudication process. Through a comparative analysis of the decision-making of other Supreme [and Constitutional] Courts, the aim is approaching innovative practices that lead to institutional changes.
