On these pages you can find information about me and my work & research.

Since 2013/14, I am Research Associate and Lecturer at the Institute of Political Science of the University of Hamburg and at the Institute for European Integration, Europa-Kolleg in Hamburg. Prior to this, I have been Visiting Fellow at Harvard University, the University of Cambridge and Sciences Po in Paris. Furthermore, I was Chercheur en Sciences Politiques at the European Court of Justice (CJEU) and postdoctoral Guest Researcher at the ARENA Centre for European Studies in Oslo, and the Max Planck Institute for Comparative Public Law and International Law in Heidelberg.

My research interests include European Union politics and European integration, regional integration, global governance in world society, international organizations, political theory and philosophy, the European Court of Justice (ECJ), integration through law / law in context, Wittgenstein studies, and Vietnam studies.
