I am a doctoral researcher at the European University Institute and a research fellow at the Geschwister-Scholl-Institute for Political Science of the Ludwig-Maximilians-University, Munich. I hold degrees from the Ludwig-Maximilians-University (BA and MA, ‘Political Science’) and the Universitat Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona (MA, ‘Current Democracies: Federalism, Nationalism, and Multiculturalism’). Previously, I have worked as a research assistant to the Chair of Empirical Theories of Politics at LMU and the Chair of European Union Governance at UPF.
In my research, I am interested in organisational behaviour and how bureaucrats can influence policy change. My doctoral dissertation looks into how bureaucratic entrepreneurs and ‘antipreneurs’ work to push or stall policy changes. As part of the German Research Foundation (DFG) research unit ‘International Public Administration (see details on the project here), I am concerned with administrative styles of International Organizations and bureaucratic influence on the international level. More generally, I am interested in comparative public policy and administration research, organisational sociology, as well as feminist political thought.
