Anne joined the Law School in September 2007. In her research Anne focuses on European and public international law. She is particularly interested in EU external relations law, international trade law, the interrelationships between different international legal systems and international dispute settlement. Her monograph International Trade Disputes and EU Liability was published with Cambridge University Press (2013). Anne obtained a Jean Monnet Fellowship at the Robert Schuman Centre for Advanced Studies of the European University Institute in Florence (2010/11). She is a Visiting Fellow at the Centre of European Law, King's College London and Editorial Board Member of ZEuS (Zeitschrift für Europarechtliche Studien, Berliner Wissenschaftsverlag). Anne has acted as external examiner (UG, PGT and PGR) and referee for articles, edited collections and monographs (e.g. European Public Law, CUP, Hart, OUP). She is admitted to the German bar as Rechtsanwältin (solicitor/barrister) and trained as a mediator. Anne speaks English, French, German and Italian.

In 2017, Anne established - together with her co-editors Professor Christina Eckes (Amsterdam) and Professor Piet Eeckhout (UCL) - the academic journal Europe and the World - A Law Review, which is the first peer-reviewed academic journal in the field of EU external relations. It aims to contribute to legal scholarship on the place of Europe in the world, with a particular focus on EU external relations law. She is co-founder of the Interest Group "The EU as a Global Actor" of the European Society of International Law (ESIL), which was launched in September 2012, and interested in international collaborative projects in that field.

Anne welcomes proposals from prospective doctoral students with an interest in international trade law, international dispute settlement, EU external relations law and related issues.
