Om mig

I am Senior Lecturer in in International Relations with focus on quantitative methods at the Department of Economic History and International Relations.

My research interests include climate governance, human rights, European Union governance in the European Neighbourhood Policy countries, international public administration networks, and external democracy promotion. 

In my research, I build on statistical analysis and machine learning techniques with an application in Social Sciences. In my current research, I exploit longitudinal data analysis for the study of climate change adaptation governance, human rights, and impact of technocratic networks.
