Biography

Since September 2018, I am the EU politics lecturer at the Department of Politics and International Relations at the University of Oxford. I am also Senior CR Fellow at St. Anthony´s and participate in the activities of the European Studies Center. Trained as a political scientist with a minor in communication science, I have been researching and teaching about European Foreign Policy, Europe´s role in the world, and European Union politics during the past years. I am, in particular, interested in the added value of European and international cooperation and changes in diplomacy. My current research investigates European diplomatic coordination, the role of EU delegations, and the way third parties relate to the European Union diplomatically. More generally, my aim is to contribute to the refinement of diplomatic studies in providing new conceptual insights and methodological tools. Next to my foreign policy interests, I have developed my expertise in Problem-Based Learning through my work at Maastricht University, which I actively share within various networks.
