I am a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Global Governance Centre of the Graduate Institute, Geneva. I work for The Paths of International Law: Stability and Change in the International Legal Order (PATHS), funded by the European Research Council. I am also a Fellow at the Carr Center for Human Rights Policy of Harvard Kennedy School.

I hold a PhD in International Relations with a Minor in International Law (summa cum laude with distinction) from the Graduate Institute, Geneva. I conduct interdisciplinary research on international relations and international law, and specialize in international courts and human rights. My research has been funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation’s Doc CH and Early Postdoc Mobility grants.

Prior to joining the PATHS team, I was a Visiting Fellow at the Center for European Studies of Harvard University and a Fellow at the Institut für die Wissenschaften vom Menschen (IWM, Institute for Human Sciences) in Vienna. During my doctoral studies, I was a Visiting Doctoral Researcher at the Center of Excellence for International Courts (iCourts) of the University of Copenhagen, and at the Centre d’études et de recherches internationales (CERI) of Sciences-Po Paris.

In addition to my academic work, I also carried out research for the Humanitarian Policy Section for UNICEF, as well as the Early Warning and Information Support Unit for the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR). And most recently, I spoke at the first High-level Meeting of the Alliance for Torture-free Trade at the UN in New York.
