Presentation

I am Assistant Professor at the Department of Management, Politics and Philosophy. My research sits at the intersection of Socio-Legal Studies and Global Governance, with a particular focus on international organizations and legal bodies, experts and knowledge production in international law, and the legal foundations of markets. In particular, my research deploys multi-sited ethnographic methods in tracking how global policy processes are developed and structured. I have been a visiting fellow at the Kosovar Institute for Policy Research and Development in Pristina, Freie Universität Berlin, Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, Melbourne Law School, University of Melbourne, and Universidad de Los Andes in Bogotá, Colombia. I sit on the board of the European International Studies Association (EISA). I am currently affiliated the research project ‘Civil Society in the Shadow of the State’ (CISTAS).
