Andreea's research interests are in the areas of EU public affairs, European public administration, ethics and integrity of governance, and public policy analysis. Her research to date has focused on ethics reforms at the European Commission, and anti-corruption policies implemented in Romania (she has published internationally on both subjects). Andreea is currently working on a project that investigates how public and private actors active in the EU sphere understand the legitimacy of lobbying and interest representation practices.
