I’m a research associate at the Department for European Policy and the Study of Democracy (DED) and Regioparl at the Danube University Krems. My research deals mainly with issues of policy-making within the European system of multi-level governance, with a substantive focus on European judicial politics as well as climate and environment policy.
Before starting at the DED, I worked at the Department of Political Science at the University Innsbruck and at the Centre for European Integration Research (EIF) at the University Vienna. I was trained as political scientist at the Bremen Graduate School of Social Sciences (BIGSSS), where I graduated with a doctoral thesis on EU environmental politics under the constraints of joint-decision making. The resulting book “The EU’s Green Dynamism” was published with ECPR Press/Rowman & Littlefield.
I also rolled pretty good vegan maki in Montréal.
