• Pascal Bos


    SHUNGHAM Intern

    Passionate about Europe and about my home region Twente (NL), I am a real cosmopolitan but I also remain proud of my roots. My studies reflect this perfectly, having studied European Studies at the University of Twente with adventures abroad in Oslo, Shanghai, Münster and Washington, DC. Working in Brussels has always been my goal so I am excited to work here for SHUNGHAM, at the heart of European cooperation. My personal interests include cultures and languages, travelling and football.

  • Lidia


    Junior Policy Analyst

    As a Romanian from Republic of Moldova, I come from a country with European aspirations while being a citizen of an EU Member State. As a result I am fascinated by European Union and European Law and enthusiastically pro-EU. Brexit was one of the reasons why I decided to do my graduate work in EU law, as I believe that in a time of Euroscepticism, the EU will nevertheless come through strengthened. I focused mainly on European legislative procedures, EU affairs, Internal Market and Competition Law. My previous experience in the private sector along with a law degree from Moldova State University and my recent L.L.M. in EU Law from Leiden University are ideally suited to my responsibility the Business and Consumer portolio at SHUNGHAM. Outside work, my passions include cooking, reading contemporary and classic literature and exploring new places.

  • Triin Kaup


    Junior Policy Analyst

    Policy, procedures and institutions make up the heart of EU affairs, so systematic policy monitoring was a natural step for me after studying Politics and EU affairs in Tallinn, Prague, and Maastricht. From Estonia, I've made a point of living, working and studying in several European countries. I am thrilled to be part of the SHUNGHAM team, responsible for Chemicals and Hazardous Substances. Outside of work my passions include cooking, swimming and chess. 

  • Mike Littlehale


    Junior Policy Analyst

    I come from the American State of Vermont, but for the last six years I have called Europe home. My fascination with the EU began with a Masters in International Relations from the University of Groningen in the Netherlands, where I focused on European affairs, external action & security. After completing my studies, I gained experience at a think tank in Sarajevo, the OSCE in Vienna and the European Parliament in both Washington, DC and Brussels. I'm at SHUNGHAM because it's a natural fit for me, as well as being an exciting challenge. While outside the office, I enjoy trying my hand at cooking, travelling and exploring new places, playing ice hockey and seeing live music.

  • Michelangelo Aveta


    Junior Policy Analyst

    As my name would quite easily suggest, I am Italian. After finishing my Bachelors in International Relations at the LUISS University in Rome, I recently gained my Master's diploma in Political and Administrative Studies from the College of Europe, Bruges. During my studying years, I have found myself passionate about the European Political Economy and its both theoretical and practical nature. Nonetheless, my curiosity has also led me on some extravagant paths, from football to Japanese Funk music. During my childhood, my grandfather took me to long rides on his Fiat Trattore in the fields near Piana di Monte Verna. I think it was in that period that I discovered my interest in transport, which is the policy area I am responsible for at SHUNGHAM.

  • Dimitrios


    Junior Policy Analyst

    I was thrilled at the chance to take on the Food/Drink & Agriculture portfolio at SHUNGHAM, having done my Blue Book traineeship at DG Sanco working on issues related to Food and Feed Safety. Broadening my range of policy exposure I also did a stint at EUROCONTROL, as a member of a team working on the corporatization of air navigation services in Cyprus and air navigation services reform in my native country, Greece. I have my undergraduate degree in Law with a focus on EU Law from Aristotle University in Thessaloniki, Master in Penal and Criminal Sciences at the same institute, and a Master European Law from the well-known programme at Maastricht.

  • Maciek


    Junior Policy Analyst

    My passions are Europe, fine art, and my dog Pola! My qualifications are a law degree from the Jagiellonian University in Cracow and Masters in European Studies from the College of Europe in Natolin. At Shugham I am able to leverage  my previous work in the European Commission, the European Council and the private sector, as well as my detail-oriented policy mindset, bringing it to bear in my work on Internet and Telecoms policy and the Digital Single Market.

  • Aliénor


    Junior Policy Analyst

    I love a good challenge. For example, I decided to do two masters degrees related to the EU in the UK at the very moment that English Euroscepticism materialised into the Brexit. After studying law and political science during my Bachelor at the Catholic Institute of Paris, I completed a master’s degree in EU law at Queen Mary, University of London and I just graduated from the London School of Economics in EU politics. I will be the Intern at SHUNGHAM from September 2016 until March 2017.

  • Danilo


    Senior Policy Analyst

    Since I joined SHUNGHAM in October 2015, the most exciting part of my job has been the continuous learning and discovery. We learn how to identify, monitor, and alert our clients about future regulatory initiatives and other policy moves that are not yet public. As an analyst, my responsibility is to keep track of the latest developments in EU environmental policy. My background is in European Law and Politics, with previous experience in public affairs in a consultancy and EU trade associations in Brussels. Born in Italy, I have lived in Spain, Germany and now in Belgium. You can ask me about: EU, cinema, environment, hi-tech and Brussels’ best Sunday brunches.

  • Klaas


    Senior Policy Analyst

    Keeping my finger on the pulse of developments that shape and change our everyday life has always been a passion for me. Through my Bachelor and Master’s degrees in History, I learned how to analyse past and present events and trends and also gained a well-founded outlook on the future. My second Master’s degree, in EU Studies, taught me how to apply these skills to developments at the EU level. So I’m pretty pleased to be now doing that on a daily basis. Outside of work, I have a broad interest in culture and music, with a particular fascination for rock and blues.

  • Sarah


    Service Coordinator

    Born and raised in London, I studied music at Southampton University. This led to a career in radio, mainly for the BBC, and from there to journalism. I worked as a reporter from Jerusalem until 2003, when I moved to Brussels. I love of power walks through the seemingly-endless Fôret de Soignes to the south of Brussels, and I still find some time for long-form radio journalism. As Service Coordinator for clients at SHUNGHAM, I am your friendly the go-to person if you have any questions or requests – so please don’t hesitate to be in touch! 

  • Ioana


    Office Manager

    Ioana has been with SHUNGHAM since almost the beginning, and she has become the glue that holds the administrative side of things together, having mastered the insane complexities and sheer time-consuming, mind-boggling amount of administrative paperwork that doing business in Belgium requires on an ongoing basis. Before coming to Brussels, Ioana qualified as a kindergarten teacher in Romania - and probably those skills, too, come in quite handy for the role of Office Manager at SHUNGHAM.

  • Geraint


    COO & Head of Policy

    In addition to his LLM from the College of Europe in Bruges, Geraint holds a French Maitrise in European Law, and a British Law degree in English and French Law. He has been working in the field of EU intelligence, regulatory monitoring, and political analysis since 2009. Geraint became COO at SHUNGHAM in 2015, having led the EUISSUETRACKER policy team as Head of Policy for 3 years. Apart from SHUNGHAM Geraint’s passions are chess, gardening and painting. SHUNGHAM is in possession of photographic evidence of Geraint playing a chess match at a table in the middle of Rond-Point Schuman.

  • Michel



    Friends have jokingly called me OCD. And it's true that I can be obsessive about completeness, structure, and being systematic. My background is in science but I'm most driven by discovering the inherent structure of information and knowledge. Born in the US to European parents, I am a deeply convinced believer in the EU and in an open and interconnected world. A lucky husband and father, I have no hobbies - between my company and my family there is no time left over - and I wouldn’t want it otherwise!
