His research focuses on the role of European integration research in the social sciences, humanities and law in the broader context of European integration. How does research contribute to shaping the political, social and cultural transformations subsumed under this label? How are processes of knowledge production of European integration research affected by its relationship and interaction with politics, especially with the European Union?

He holds an MA in Political Science, Sociology and Modern History from the Ludwig-Maximilian’s University Munich (Germany) and a PhD in Political Science from the Queen’s University Belfast (UK).
