My PhD research focuses on the sociology of finance, banking regulation, and the interplay of transnational processes, history and law.

Research Experience

I am 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.
