She obtained her BA in International Relations and Communication Science at the University of Erfurt. Her research interest lies at the intersection of International Law, Critical Security Studies, and Postcolonial Theory. More specifically, she is interested in the world-making and world-ordering activities of international law in the realm of international security, the construction and contestation of (legal) expertise and authority, as well as the narratives and practices that (re)produce and perform the international legal field and the (colonial) hierarchies within it.
