Sophia Russack is a Researcher in the Institutions Unit at CEPS. Her main research interests lay in the fields of EU institutional architecture and decision-making processes, with a particular focus on the European Commission. She covers topics of EU reform and EU treaty revision, as well as the concept of differentiated European integration.

In the course of her Master’s degree programme in European Studies at Maastricht University, she received in-depth instruction in the politics and policies of the European Union as well as in qualitative and quantitative research methods.
