Academic Work Experience


Teaching Experience

I was a Teaching Assistant for different courses in the ANSO and MINT departments including Climates and History, Research Design and Proposal Writing in the Social Sciences, Apocalypse Then and Now: Advanced Research Seminar in Understanding Systemic Collapse and Adaptation, Anthropology and Finance, and the Applied Research Project (Environment and Sustainability Track).

Research Experience

I was a Research Assistant on the ERC-funded project "PATHS of International Law". The project seeks to understand when and how international law changes, how this change is registered among participants in legal discourses, and how pathways of change differ across issue areas and sites of international legal practice.
