A Little About me

I am a lecturer of international studies at the School of Politics and International Studies (POLIS), the University of Leeds, and will start a new position at the University of Groningen in November 2019. My interest lies in exploring and researching the processes and mechanisms underlying social conflicts and cooperation. In particular, I study the microfoundations of social diversity and conflicts and how different groups of people can co-exist within a society in an era of globalization. I have received several awards and grants for my research. You can learn more about my research on this website (projects and publications) and my CV.
