Research overview

My research is at the intersection of European Studies and International Relations. I conduct research on EU-Russian diplomatic relations, EU foreign policy towards the post-Soviet space, Russian politics as well as on the EU's and Russia's conceptualisation as actors in international politics.

This research interest is reflected in my participation in an international research consortium titled EU Foreign Policy Facing New Realities: Perceptions, Contestation, Communication and Relations, funded by the European Cooperation in Science and Technology (COST), CA17119: https://foreignpolicynewrealities.eu/ Within this consortium I am a member of a working group studying the EU's perception as an actor in international politics, coordinate a network aimed at the development of early career researchers and contributed to the creation of an editorial team of a policy brief series.
