Oana Stefan focuses on European Union Law, in particular energy law, competition and state aid, constitutional and administrative law. Her work combines socio-legal and doctrinal analysis, quantitative and qualitative methods, while exploring the limits of the rule of law, and questions related to new modes of governance and judicial politics.

She also engages with EU transparency studies.
