DSC_5887I am a Fellow of the Study Group Human Rights in the 20th Century and currently located at Friedrich-Schiller-University in Jena. Before, 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.

In May 2018, I submitted my PhD thesis on the history of human rights and population control in the second half of the 20th century; I will defend my thesis at the University of Vienna in early October this year.
