Andrea Ciambra holds a PhD in International Studies from the School of International Studies, University of Trento, Italy. In April 2013 he defended a thesis on the 'policisation' of the EU's discourse on energy policy, analysing the case-studies of the wind-power and energy-efficiency developments at the EU level. He holds a BA in International Relations and Politics (2006) and an MA in EU Governance (2008) from the University of Catania, Italy.
His research interests include public policy-making at the EU level, discourse analysis, and the external relations of the European Union. His recent works, in particular, deal with the theoretical sustainability of a common EU energy policy.
He is currently adjunct professor at the Faculty of Law of Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB), carrying out research on social science methodology, energy policy, and data analysis. From January 2015, he will work as a researcher at the Institute of Law and Technology of the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB), within a Spanish nation-wide project about technology development and democracy consolidation.
