Biography

I have been at the University of Exeter since 2011, first as a Marie Curie fellow, then as a lecturer. I was promoted to Senior Lecturer in 2016.

I hold degrees in social science (Humboldt-University Berlin, Paris VIII) and Interdisciplinary France studies (University Freiburg). I did my PhD as part of the graduate programme ‘The Future of the European Social Model’ (supervisors: Prof. Ilona Ostner and Prof. Claus Offe). The dissertation addressed the Open Method of Coordination in the field of social inclusion and its implementation in France, Germany, and at the EU-level.

Between 2006-2008, I have lectured at the Georg-August University Göttingen and the Humboldt University Berlin in the fields of European social policy governance, poverty in the EU and European integration theory. From 2008-2011, and after five months at the Institute for European Integration Research in Vienna, I was a lecturer at the Jean Monnet Centre for European Studies,University of Bremen. From October 2013-April 2014, I was a fellow at the Hanse Wissenschaftskolleg (Delmenhorst).
