Personal profile

Research interests

My research areas cover IR theory, International Political Thought, 20th century Continental Thought as well as the Philosophy of (Social) Science. My PhD thesis developed a Heideggerian critique of Critical Realism in contemporary IR theory and is currently transformed into a book under review with CUP.

My current research projects focus on the notion and nature of and conditions for trust in international politics. The second project rethinks the notion of death in international politics specifically focussing on politically motivated mass death.
