I am a researcher working on legitimation and governance in international politics and civil war. 

I work as a Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Potsdam.


My research deals with


How can we theorise and operationalise legitimation in contexts of complex governance such as international politics or civil war?


How are political systems upheld during conflict? What is the relation between violence, authority and support?


How do multi-layered goverancne systems interact? How do armed actors govern in civil war?

Qualitative Methods

When should we do fieldwork? What are the ethics of fieldwork in contexts of political violence?
