I am a political scientist and PhD candidate at Goethe University Frankfurt. I am currently working as a Research Associate at the Chair of International Institutions and Peace Processes. Prior to that, I was a Doctoral Researcher at the Peace Research Institute Frankfurt (PRIF/HSFK).

My research focuses on the ‘inner workings’ of international organizations. I am interested in processes of organizational learning and reform, the role of internal criticism, practices of self-legitimation, and the agency and emotions of IO staff. My research has appeared or is forthcoming in outlets like Journal of International Relations & Development, Swiss Journal of Sociology, Zeitschrift für Internationale Beziehungen (zib), German Politics, and the Oxford Handbook on International Political Sociology.
