On these pages you can find information about my work as Research Director at the Europa-Kolleg Hamburg – Institute for European Integration and Research Associate and Lecturer at the Institute of Political Science of the University of Hamburg.

Prior to this, I have been Visiting Fellow at Harvard University, the University of Cambridge, Sciences Po in Paris, and conducted research as Chercheur en Sciences Politiques at the European Court of Justice (CJEU) and Guest Researcher (postdoc) at the ARENA Centre for European Studies in Oslo, and at the Max Planck Institute for Comparative Public Law and International Law in Heidelberg. Most recently, I carried out an independent research project on the role of inter-regionalism in International Relations at the Fudan Development Institute (FDDI) in Shanghai as well as at the European Union Centre in Taiwan (EUTW).

My research interests include European Union (EU) politics and european institutions, regional integration and interregionalism, international organizations, international political theory and political philosophy, Contextualism, the European Court of Justice (ECJ), integration through law / law in context, and Wittgenstein studies.
