Nelly is a PhD-student in laws and a research associate at the Institute for Criminal Law and Criminal Procedure at the University of Cologne.

In the field White Collar Crime, her research interests range from socio-legal considerations to questions of legal theory and the application of laws. She focuses on the emergence of the New German Anti-Foreign Bribery Law, which was strongly influenced by international treaties and also by powerful national laws such as the UK Bribery Act 2010 and the US FCPA. In order to do more thorough studies on the latter she visited UC Berkeley last year.

Nelly holds a Magister iuris from the University of Cologne and a Master of Laws from LTU Melbourne. Her stay at the Centre is funded by the German Academic Exchange Programme.
