I’m a researcher in International Relations working on expertise, empire, and capitalism in the history and theory of international organisations. Currently I’m William Golding Junior Research Fellow at Brasenose College, University of Oxford. As Oxford Martin Fellow I work on the Changing Global Orders programme where I also host the podcast Global Shocks.

I completed a DPhil in International Relations at Balliol College, University of Oxford (2023), for which I received the prize for Best Doctoral Thesis in IR by the Department for Politics and International Relations. Before joining Brasenose College, I worked as Lecturer at Utrecht University (2022-23) and at Pembroke College, University of Oxford (2021-22). My research, funded by the UK Arts and Humanities Research Council and the German Academic Scholarship Foundation, won the ISA Barbara W. Tuchman Prize (2023), the ISA Prize for Best Graduate Paper in IR Theory (2023), the ISA-Northeast Fred Hartmann Award (2022), and the EISA Best Graduate Paper Award (2021).

Some of my writing has appeared in TIME Magazine, The New Statesman, The TLS, and other outlets. I’m an Associate Member of the Centre for Global Knowledge Studies (Groningen) and affiliated with the Security History Network (Utrecht). Previously I convened the Seminar in the History of International Politics (SHIP) at the University of Oxford.
