Thanks for visiting my website! Since April 2023, I am Associate Professor for Human Rights and Social Sciences at the University of Oslo's Centre for Human Rights. I am also research associate at the Graduate Institute Geneva's Global Governance Centre. In Spring 2023, I am teaching "Global Advocacy" at the International Relations/Political Science Department at the Graduate Institute. I earned my PhD in Political Science from the University of Potsdam, where I also worked as a researcher and lecturer in International Relations, and I was member of the interdisciplinary research group “International Rule of Law: Rise or Decline?” from 2016-2023.
My research broadly engages questions related to agency and change in international relations and international law, human rights and global 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, the German Research Foundation and APSIA.
