I’m a Lecturer in the History of International Relations at Utrecht University, The Netherlands, and a D.Phil. candidate at Balliol College, University of Oxford. I previously worked as Stipendiary Lecturer in International Relations at Pembroke College, University of Oxford.

My doctoral research, funded by the UK Arts and Humanities Research Council, focuses on international politics in the long nineteenth century, particularly the relationship between technical international cooperation, empire, and capitalism. In my dissertation I examine the role of technocracy and expertise in imagining the modern sphere of the international. Parts of this project have been published in International Studies Quarterly and the Journal of International Political Theory. I have also written for public outlets, including Responsible Statecraft and The Conversation.

My work has been awarded the ISA Barbara W. Tuchman Prize (2023) for Best Paper by a Graduate Student in Historical International Relations, the EISA Best Graduate Paper Award (2021), and the ISA-Northeast Fred Hartmann Award (2021) for Best Paper by a Graduate Student.

I previously obtained an M.Phil. in International Relations at the University of Oxford (2019) and a B.A. in Liberal Arts and Sciences at University College Utrecht (2017). I’m also an Associate Member of the Centre for Global Knowledge Studies at the University of Cambridge and was the convener of the Seminar in the History of International Politics (SHIP) at the University of Oxford.
