About me

I am currently a Senior Research Fellow and Lecturer in Global Politics and Conflict Studies at the Bundeswehr University Munich’s Institute of Political Science. My research focuses on historic and international political sociologies of international relations and, in particular, on Foucauldian post-structuralism and (de-)constructionist theories of global order(ing). Regionally, my research concentrates on societal and political dynamics in the Middle East and North Africa. In my scholarly approach, I attempt to transcend disciplinary boundaries, working very much at the intersection of several (sub-)disciplines of political science, international relations, sociology, and history. Hence, transdisciplinarity is a foundational basis of my identity as a researcher.

Due to the interdisciplinary orientation of my work, AGYA offers the perfect environment in which to cooperatively advance cutting-edge research bridging disciplines and cultures. AGYA is a unique research network and platform, and I am grateful for the invaluable opportunities for intellectual exchange it offers.
