I received my PhD in Social and Political Sciences from the European University Institute. Before joining CBS, I was lecturer at the University of Oxford and the University of Essex. My research is located within international political economy with particular interests in global governance, the politics of development and the relationship between economy and society focusing on political actors and practices at the transnational level and the role of ideas and norms in international politics. Specifically, I study international organizations and multinational corporations, and questions of legitimacy and responsibility in international politics. I am currently leading a project for instance, entitled Responsibility in World Politics, that takes a much broader – political science – perspective on CSR as a contested international norm. My work often draws upon sociological approaches and methodology in order to understand the micro-foundations of political processes and formations on a macro scale.

Primary research areas
  • International Political Economy
