Personal profile

Research interests

My research lies at the intersection of International Relations Theory, Political Theory and Security Studies. I investigate the normative potential of the concept of security and the conceptual place of security in theories of (international) politics. I'm especially interested in the depoliticizing tendencies of security as related to security's central role in modern political imagination. I focuses on non-rationalist, sociological and historically contextualised approaches to theorizing politics and her research contributes to the renaissance of classical realism in IR as well as to the work developing on Judith Shklar's, Isaiah Berlin's and Hannah Arendt's ideas in Political Theory. While topically diverse (including the environment, food security, nationalism and human rights), my research gravitates to two theoretical foci: the emergence of normative knowledge out of reflected social practices and the role of politics in pacifying conflict and transitioning out of security-induced emergency politics.


I joined the Department of International Politics in 2009. My research and teaching interests span across Political Theory, International Relations and Security Studies. I'm is especially interested in normative aspects of security and in international political theory that responds to particular political histories yet is globally focused and normatively committed.
