Trained as a political scientist with additional education in science and technology studies, my research interests revolve around environmental governance, climate politics, and development. I am particularly interested in questions of legitimacy, power, and knowledge production related to societal transformations.
Having investigated how power shapes energy transitions in Southeast Asia, I received my PhD in Political Science at the Environmental Policy Research Centre at Freie Universität Berlin in 2015. Before joining Stockholm University, I conducted research on the challenges of climate policy implementation as a visiting research fellow at Harvard University's STS Program.
I previously worked at universities in Lüneburg, Berlin, and Halle, where I also taught in comparative politics and international relations.
