Welcome!

I am an Associate Professor of Political Science at the University of Mannheim. From 2010 to 2016, I was based at the European Politics group of ETH Zurich, as a doctoral student, post doc, and senior researcher. I spent Fall 2015 as a Visiting Scholar at Harvard University.

My research focuses on democratic governance in the European Union and international politics. I am interested in the emergence and limits of democracy beyond the state, the effects of European integration and international institutions on domestic democracy, and the impact of domestic democratic politics on institutional and political change in the EU and beyond. Ultimately, my aim is to understand whether democratic forms of governance can adapt to the challenges and contribute to the legitimation of European and international institutions.
