Although a German national, I received my entire University-level education in the United Kingdom (BA, MA and PhD). In addition to Germany and the UK, I have researched, studied and worked in Spain and Italy, and frequently spend time in Brussels / Belgium. My teaching, publications and research expertise is comparative (Germany, UK and EU): Politics and political economy, with a focus on Germany and the UK, examining issues in both countries as well as at the EU level, political parties, labour market policies, EU treaties, and terrorism. I also have a research interest in Teaching and Learning.
