I am a PhD Candidate in International Relations at the Berlin Graduate School for Global and Transregional Studies, Freie Universit├Ąt Berlin.

My research focuses on the political economy of international organizations (e.g., examining the effects and decisions of the IMF), public health & inequality, and leadership in times of crisis. I am particularly interested in studying the micro-foundations of state action in global governance using text-as-data and regression analysis.

Currently, I am pursuing the following research questions:

  • What is the role of deliberation in decision-making of international organizations?
  • How do states pursue their preferences in governing bodies of international organizations?
  • How do leaders respond to crises?
