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 and teaching focuses on the European Union, international organizations, and parliaments and legislatures.
I study reforms that could strengthen the legitimacy and effectiveness of the European Union. I am especially interested in the involvement of parliaments in the EU and in differentiated European integration. Parliamentary involvement and differentiated integration are popular reform proposals as to what the EU needs to become more legitimate and effective. My research explores the conditions under which we can expect the adoption of these reform proposals, and the impact they have on European governance. Recent projects also investigate other international organizations and the governance of the internet.
