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 have previously worked as Stipendiary Lecturer in International Relations at the 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, the Journal of International Political Theory, and The Conversation.

My work has received the EISA Best Graduate Paper Award (2021), the ISA Fred Hartmann Award (2021), and an honourable mention for the Barbara W. Tuchman Prize (2022) by the International Studies Association’s Historical International Relations section.

I previously obtained an M.Phil. at the University of Oxford (2019) and a B.A. 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 convener of the Seminar in the History of International Politics (SHIP) at the University of Oxford.
