I am Lecturer in International Relations (IR). My research interests are in IR theory and in the role of ideas, norms and identities in international relations. Here I focus in particular on the complex interactions between liberal and non-liberal ideas and actors in world politics. This interest manifests itself in two parallel research agendas. The first concentrates on the role of religion and civilizational identities in world politics, with particular attention to American foreign policy, transatlantic relations, and West-Islam relations. A second research agenda focuses on the challenges to the liberal international order posed by authoritarian rising powers and populists.

Previously to joining Exeter, I was a Max Weber Postdoctoral Fellow (2012-2014) at the European University Institute (EUI). I obtained my PhD in International Relations from the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) in 2012
