I am a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Käte Hamburger Kolleg / Centre for Global Cooperation Research (KHK/GCR21) at the University of Duisburg-Essen.

Previosuly, I have been a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Cluster of Excellence “Normative Orders” at the Goethe University Frankfurt.

I hold a Ph.D. in Environmental Politics from Tilburg University. While there, I carried out my research at the Department of European and International Public Law, where I was affiliated with the group of Legal Philosophy.

In my leisure time, I like to read, to sail, to drive while listening to podcasts, and to travel with my wife. In the picture on the right (top) I’m in Trier, arguing with Marx.

NEWS! My new article titled “the post-sustainability trilemma” is out! If you want to go through it, please, let me know what are your thoughts about it.
