Research Associate and Lecturer in International Political Theory at Goethe University Frankfurt


Welcome to my personal webpage. I am a political theorist working at Goethe University Frankfurt, under the Chair of International Political Theory at the Excellence Cluster "On the Formation of Normative Orders." I write on democratic theory, world politics, the politics of crisis, critical social theory, and Immanuel Kant’s political philosophy, with additional interests in the history of political thought, European politics, pragmatism, and analytic political philosophy. I have taught university courses in New York, Berlin, and Frankfurt and am the author of the book, Commercium: Critical Theory from a Cosmopolitan Point of View, as well as several peer-reviewed articles. I completed my bachelor’s degree at Vassar College and received my master’s degree and Ph.D. at the New School for Social Research in New York, under the supervision of Nancy Fraser.
