Personal profile

Personal Statement

I am Senior Lecturer in International Relations and Chancellor’s Fellow in Energy Policy at the University of Strathclyde. I am also a Fellow at the Initiative for Sustainable Energy Policy (ISEP), Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS) and Associated Researcher at the Centre for the Political Economy of Reforms at the University of Mannheim.

Before joining Strathclyde, I have been Lecturer in International Relations at the University of Glasgowand Academic Director of the MSc/MRes programs in International Relations since 2016. I was a postdoctoral fellow at Washington University in St. Louis and a research fellow at Columbia University and obtained my PhD in Political Science from the University of Mannheim.  I also hold degrees in Environmental and Resource Economics from University College London and Philosophy & Economics from the University of Bayreuth.

My research focuses on central questions in international cooperation and the political economy of environmental and energy politics. I am particularly interested in understanding the relationship between domestic and international politics. Current projects include formal and quantitative work on multilateral agreements, government-firm interaction in carbon markets, and international climate pledges.

My work was published or is forthcoming with the Journal of PoliticsJournal of Conflict ResolutionReview of International OrganizationsEnergy Economics, and Science Advances. My co-authored book on the “Energy Poverty Trap” is out now with MIT Press. I have written for the Washington Post’s Monkey Cage, VoxDev, or ISEP Policy Briefs, and my work has been covered by The Economist.
