Veronica was an Assistant Professor at Dublin City University and a Max Weber Fellow at the European University Institute. She was also a Visiting Scholar at Cornell Law School, the University of Turin and the University of Piemonte Orientale.

Her most recent research has focused on the governance of migration to Europe and its relationship with migrants’ struggles. As a researcher in the FOLIE (Forms of Life and Legal Integration in Europe) project, conducted under the auspices of Sciences Po Law School, she has explored the relationship between law and migrant living conditions, focusing specifically on the context of the Calais camp. Her work was conducted in collaboration with the Migration Clinic of Sciences Po Law School, which she co-coordinated. She is currently working on immigrant detention and the Hotspot approach, seeking to further explore the implications of the construction of migrant spaces in European law from a critical perspective.
