Welcome to my homepage!
I am a political scientist working as a Postdoctoral Researcher at the German Research Institute for Public Administration in Speyer. My research deals broadly speaking with the governance and implementation of regulatory policies in multi-level settings, in particular in the EU.
I presently work with Michael W. Bauer on the role of litigation in the implementation of EU policies. We explore the national politics behind member states’ decisions to litigate against the Commission before the European Court of Justice.
Prior to this, I also worked on regulatory agencies and their interactions with other regulatory actors in multi-level settings. If you are interested in this topic, you can find my work on this in my CV and list of publications.
My PhD is in EU regulatory governance, from the European University Institute (2014). It addresses the regulatory capacity of the EU as it responds to the huge challenge of integrating national markets. It explores its weaknesses, the EU regulatory networks, expert committees and EU agencies formed in response. Empirically based on three key regulatory policies (food safety, electricity and telecommunications), it explores the conditions of emergence and evolution of different delegation patterns. The manuscript will appear as a book with Palgrave in 2016.If you want to know more about me or my work, please see my CV and list of publications.
