International Relations (2016 cohort)

I am a doctoral student at Oxford’s Department of Politics and International Relations and a member of St Antony’s College. My research looks at the transformation of institutionalised cooperation in areas like international trade and finance. I stress how changing distributions of power, alongside efficiency considerations, play a key role in determining the strategic behaviour that underlies the evolution of global governance structures. 

Prior to the DPhil, I was Adam von Trott Scholar and completed the MPhil in International Relations at the University of Oxford. I hold a Bachelor’s degree in Social Sciences (summa cum laude) from Sciences Po Paris and studied at the University of Cologne, the London School of Economics and Political Science, and Fudan University. During my MPhil, I was an editor for St Antony’s International Review, Oxford’s peer-reviewed journal of international affairs. Besides my studies, I have gained practical experience through internships with the Foreign Service and one of Europe’s largest development finance institutions.
