Short presentation

I work as a post-doctoral researcher in Lisa Hultman’s project „Ending Atrocities: Third-Party Interventions into Civil Wars”. My research focuses on different types of armed actors and conflict dynamics. I explore under what conditions third party intervention into conflict affected countries are effective. I also investigate how different types of non-state armed actors' constellations shape violent behavior. Please see my CV for a full list of publications and teaching.
