Teaching profile


I have a background in political science with a focus on public policy / public administration as well as comparative politics. Before joining the Department of Political Science at the University of Oslo I worked as a postdoctoral research fellow at the Scandinavian Consortium for Organizational Research (SCANCOR) at Stanford University. Prior to that I was a postdoctoral researcher and the coordinator of the thematic area "Governance and Organization" at the International Centre for Higher Education Research (INCHER) at the University of Kassel.

I received my PhD from the University of Oslo (2016) and I hold a master's degree (Magister Artium) in political science from the Johannes Gutenberg-University in Mainz (2010). I was a visiting researcher at Nuffield College at the University of Oxford and the Department of Politics and Public Administration at the University of Konstanz. In addition, I taught courses at the Political Science Departments of the Johannes Gutenberg-University in Mainz, the Georg-August-University Göttingen, and the Nanyang Technological University Singapore.
