I am an Associate Professor of EU and International Politics at the London School of Economics. I received my training as a political scientist at Princeton University and the Freie Universität Berlin (Ph.D. in 2009). Since then, I have held visiting positions at Harvard University, the University of St. Gallen, Wissenschaftszentrum Berlin and the European University Institute.
My research and teaching focuses broadly on EU politics, global governance, international organization and international political economy. Specifically, I am interested in the dynamics between domestic politics and international cooperation. In this context, I have also written extensively on the relationship between formal and informal governance in international organizations.
I have published in top field and general political science journals, among them the British Journal of Political Science, International Theory, Journal of Common Market Studies and the Review of International Organizations. My book Informal Governance in the European Union appeared in 2013 with Cornell University Press.
I frequently comment on current affairs on questions of global governance and EU politics. In the past two years, I have given numerous talks on the various aspects of “Brexit.”
