Welcome. I am an International Relations scholar focusing on the comparative political economy of regional and global governance. I have written several articles and a book about European Union (EU) spending. My most recent book, which examines EU spending effects on well-being, is entitled Is Europe Good for You? EU Spending and Well-Being (Policy Press, Bristol, 2021).
I have also written about aid, legitimacy, and global environmental governance. I have worked with institutions such as UN Environment and the World Health Organization on issues related to climate change adaptation. On this topic, I lead the 5-year research program Glocalizing Climate Governance.
I am an Associate Professor of International Relations at the Department of Economic History and International Relations at Stockholm University (SU). I received my PhD from the University of Mannheim in Germany in 2011. Since then, I have been postdoctoral fellow in political science at SU and the Stockholm Resilience Center, and I have been visiting fellow at Duke University, Trinity College Dublin, the University of Bergen, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, among others.
