I am Research and Teaching Associate at the Technische Universität Dresden focusing on International Relations and EU external relations (particularly in what used to be called the “community pillar”) from a rational-choice institutionalist (principal–agent) perspective. I also take a keen interest in teaching. My work has appeared in the Journal of European Public Policy, Journal of Common Market Studies, and European Political Science. While I have worked mostly qualitatively in the past, I have recently taken up R to see what it can do for my research. Stay tuned!
Outside academia, I take pride in being an active member of society. I occasionally comment on current affairs in online newspapers or on scholarly blogs. I am particularly committed to the promotion of the Erasmus program, which shows in my participation in Europe’s first-ever European Citizens’ Initiative (ECI) Fraternité 2020. Moreover, I have been a trainee (bluebook stagaire) at the European Commission in Brussels and the Stiftung Wissenschaft und Politik in Berlin.
