CV

I am a political theorist and predoctoral research fellow at the WZB's Center for Global Constitutionalism. In my doctoral research project I study the normative foundations of political authority with a special focus on reasonable disagreement. Before coming to the WZB, I studied philosophy and social sciences at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin and political theory at the University of Oxford. I currently also serve as the Director of Operations and Communications of ICON•S | The International Society of Public Law.
