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’), the Universitat Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona (MA, ‘Current Democracies: Federalism, Nationalism, and Multiculturalism’), and the European University Institute (M.Res ‘Political and Social Sciences’). Previously, I have worked as a research assistant to the Chair of Empirical Theories of Politics at LMU, the Chair of European Union Governance at UPF, and in the Robert Schumann Centre for Advanced Studies’ project “The European Commission: Where now? Where Next?”.
In my research, I am interested in organisational behaviour and how bureaucrats can influence policy change. My doctoral dissertation looks into how bureaucratic agents can influence the policy-making process and policy change especially after changes of government. 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.
