Thanks for visiting my website! I am an Associate Professor of Human Rights and Social Sciences at University of Oslo's Faculty of Law. Since January 2024, I am Deputy Head of Department & Head of Research at the Norwegian Centre for Human Rights. At the Faculty of Law, I am leading the research group Global Challenges to Human Rights. I hold an affiliation as research associate with the Graduate Institute Geneva's Global Governance Centre.
Prior to coming to Oslo, I was a member of the interdisciplinary research group “International Rule of Law: Rise or Decline?” at Freie Universität Berlin. I earned my PhD in Political Science from the University of Potsdam, where I also worked as a researcher and lecturer in International Relations. Research and teaching stays brought me to Madrid, San Diego, Geneva and Stockholm.
My research broadly engages questions related to agency and change in international relations and international law, human rights and global advocacy. To address them, I enjoy collaborating with colleagues within and beyond my discipline. You can find more information on my current research, publications, teaching, and my CV on this website.
