Research and teaching fellow, University of Geneva, Université de Genève

I’m a Research and Teaching Fellow (Maître-Assistant) in International Relations and Security at the University of Geneva. In July 2021, I defended my PhD thesis in International Relations/Political Science at the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies Geneva.

I research how international organizations (IOs) shape the provision of security, with a focus on the African Union. My focus lies on the politics of resource mobilization in IOs. In my doctoral dissertation, I theorized the effects of diversified IO funding on the agency of IO secretariats, through the case of the African Union.

My research is published in the Journal of Common Market Studies, West European Politics, International Spectator and by Routledge.

Occasionally, I provide media commentary on African international relations and work as a consultant on IO funding and African Union affairs.
