Welcome to my website!
I am a Political Scientist in the interdisciplinary research group “International Rule of Law: Rise or Decline?” at Free University Berlin and research associate at the Global Governance Centre at the Graduate Institute Geneva. I earned my PhD in Political Science from the University of Potsdam, where I also worked as a researcher and lecturer in International Relations.
My research broadly engages questions in international law, human rights and social justice. To address them, I enjoy collaborating with colleagues within and beyond my discipline. Research and teaching stays brought me to Madrid, San Diego, Geneva and Stockholm. My work on transnational lawmaking coalitions received the 2019 United Nations Association of Germany biennial Dissertation Award and the 2022 Academic Council on the United Nations system (ACUNS) biennial book award. I have successfully applied for external research funding from the Fritz Thyssen Foundation, the German Academic Exchange Service and the German Research Foundation.
