I am a political scientist based in Zurich, working at the nexus of academia and political consultancy. My educationresearch, publications and teaching in England, France, Germany, Turkey and Algeria and my policy work in think tanks in Germany and Turkey have so far focused on statebuilding, peacebuilding and reconciliation especially in the case of African politics, on social democracy, European affairs, transatlantic relations and Turkey.

 

Having completed my doctoral studies at Humboldt University Berlin on African statebuilding and nationbuilding in light of the South Sudanese experience, I am currently working as postdoctoral researcher at the University St Gallen as part of the EU-STRAT project, an EU-funded research project on foreign policy in the Eastern Partnership countries. 

 

I earned my Bachelors degree in Philosophy, Politics and Economics from Oxford University’s St. Hugh’s College and my Masters degree in Contemporary European Studies from the University of Bath, Sciences Po Paris and Humboldt University Berlin.
