I’m a researcher working at the intersection between International Relations and history. I’m intrigued by the relationship between expertise, empire, and capitalism in the history of international organisations. I currently work as a postdoctoral Research Associate at the Department of Politics and International Relations, University of Oxford, as part of the Changing Global Orders programme at the Oxford Martin School, where I’m an Oxford Martin Fellow.
I previously taught as Lecturer in the History of International Relations at Utrecht University, The Netherlands, and as Stipendiary Lecturer in International Relations at Pembroke College, University of Oxford. I’m also a D.Phil. candidate (dissertation submitted) at Balliol College, University of Oxford.
My research, funded with scholarships from the UK Arts and Humanities Research Council and the German Academic Scholarship Foundation, has been published in International Studies Quarterly and the Journal of International Political Theory. My work has been awarded the ISA Barbara W. Tuchman Prize (2023), the EISA Best Graduate Paper Award (2021), and the ISA-Northeast Fred Hartmann Award (2021). I have also written for public outlets including Responsible Statecraft and The Conversation.
I’m also an Associate Member of the Centre for Global Knowledge Studies at the University of Cambridge and affiliated with the Security History Network at Utrecht University. Previously I was the convener of the Seminar in the History of International Politics (SHIP) at the University of Oxford.
