Former Research Fellow





I am a PhD student at the Blavatnik School of Government and Nuffield College at the University of Oxford. I work primarily in the field of Comparative Political Economy. My current research interests lie at the intersection of climate change and business power. I aspire to understand how technological advancements in decarbonization, economic and political institutions, and sectoral characteristics shape the political dynamics of opposing and supporting interest groups in climate change mitigation.

Before joining the University of Oxford, I worked as a doctoral researcher and lecturer at the Humboldt University of Berlin. During my Social Sciences studies at Humboldt University, I was primarily interested in theories of the state, hegemony, régulation theory, and Political Economy. In 2022, I finished my MA with a thesis on deindustrialization and the political geography of climate change.
