I am a political scientist specialising in international political economy.
My research focuses on global economic governance, the EU and Russian foreign economic policy. I studied politics, law and economics at Sciences Po Paris, the Moscow Institute for International Relations (MGIMO) and the University of Sant Gallen in Switzerland. I hold a PhD from the London School of Economics (LSE).
My dissertation traces and explains the EU’s role in the global investment regime from the 1950s until today. Prior to joining the EUI, I worked as a policy analyst (Young Professionals Programme) on international regulatory cooperation and trade policy at the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) in Paris.
I have, moreover, worked as policy advisor for the German Federal Government, the European Parliament and the European Commission and taught international relations and international political economy at the LSE and Sciences Po Paris. As a Max Weber Fellow, I will assess how the broadening agenda of international economic negotiations such as the Transpacific Partnership (TPP) and Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) alters the institutional and ideational foundations of the multilateral trade regime.
