My research interests cover concepts of democracy, democracy promotion by international actors, and transnational social movements. My book “Globalization, EU Democracy Assistance and the World Social Forum: Concepts and Practices of Democracy” was published in 2018 in the Palgrave Series European Political Sociology. I have analyzed the EU’s concepts of democracy and civil society in the European Neighbourhood Policy. Furthermore, I was interested to learn how social movement activists practice democracy and co-operate transnationally. For that purpose, I participated in the World Social Forums in 2013 and 2015 in Tunis (and other events) and applied approaches in political sociology.

I hold a PhD in Global Studies (2017) from Leipzig University (Germany). I conducted research as a postdoc at York University (2018-2019) and the Leibniz Science Campus Eastern Europe-Global Area (2019) in Leipzig. Since Fall 2020, I am the DAAD Visiting Assistant Professor at the Department of Politics at York University. This position is co-funded by York University and the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD: https://www.daad.de/en/). I teach in the field of Comparative Politics, International Relations, and I contribute to German Studies. I am the coordinator of the Graduate Diploma German and European Studies.
