My research interests comprise governance and public policy, in particular in the area of environmental politics from climate change to disaster risk reduction (DRR).

My dissertation project focuses on drivers of progress in disaster governance and investigates causes and mechanisms of how an international framework (the Hyogo Framework for Action by the UNISDR) translates into policy decision on the national level.
