Anna-Maria is an Editor and Junior Research Fellow at the ICCT. Since graduating from Leiden University’s MSc Crisis and Security Management in April 2019, she has worked in the field of international criminal investigations, and as a researcher at the TMC Asser Institute. Her research interests include intelligence, the changing nature and role of evidence in ICHL trials, the conflicts in Syria and Iraq, and the connection between conflict and the climate crisis.

Anna-Maria gained a BSc in Anthropology from Brunel University in London, UK. She is particularly keen on adopting an ethnographic research approach when possible, especially after spending over 6 months in southern Italy researching and writing on the migrant crisis. Her latest work prior to joining the ICCT was in an international NGO, focusing on documenting the atrocities in Syria and Iraq and bringing justice to those affected.
