Current research and teaching

I hold a DPhil in International Relations from the University of Oxford, an MA in Global Affairs from Yale University, where I received the Award for Academic Excellence in Global Affairs (for the top graduate), as well as a BSc in Management from the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE), which I completed with First Class Honours.

My dual research agenda focuses on world public opinion about global governance and experimental survey methods. I have conducted nationwide survey experiments in various countries around the world, advancing research on public attitudes toward international organizations and proposed reforms, as well as experimental survey design and analysis methods.

I have been principal instructor or teaching assistant on quantitative social science methods and international law at the University of Oxford and at Yale University. In Lund, I will provide undergraduate thesis supervision in 2021.
