I hold a position as part of the academic staff with the Chair of Modern History at Friedrich-Schiller-University Jena. Before, I was a Fellow of the Study Group Human Rights in the 20th Century and held a Fritz Thyssen Foundation grant. From 2013 to 2017, I was a pre-doctoral Lecturer at the Department of Contemporary History at the University of Vienna. I held visiting fellowships at Columbia University and Trinity College Dublin.
In my research I am specializing in international and transnational history of the 20th century. I am particularly fascinated by international organizations, transnational networks and the people and ideas operating in these spaces. I use sources located in different archives around the globe. Increasingly, I integrate digital humanities methods into my research.
