I hold a PhD from the University of Hamburg and an MA from the University of York. Prior to joining Cardiff, I worked as lecturer at the University of Hamburg.

My research is located in international relations with particular interests in global governance, focusing on actors and practices at the transnational level and the role of culture in international politics. Concentrating on norms and ideas, I am interested in questions of legitimacy and are currently engaged in studying the rise of responsibility discourses across various governance fields (e.g. security, economics, environment) and with regard to a number of objects of international politics (oceans, oil, fish, the earth's atmosphere).

I am particularly intrigued by methodological concerns to capture discursive processes within and between International Organizations, states and the role of individuals. My work draws on hermeneutic philosophy and praxiographic methodology in order to understand micro-practices of interaction processes and their relation to macro structures. I have previously conducted case studies on the role of norms in the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea, foreign policy making in Europe and elsewhere.

In March 2017 I was awarded an Early Career Researcher Grant by the British International Studies Association. The project focuses on Arctic Governance with a particular emphasis on cooperation in the Arctic Council.
