My research focus lies within the field of International Relations, relying on social and political theory, political science, sociology and political economy. The focus of my publications has been with realism and constructivism in international theory, foreign policy analysis (mainly applied in Europe), as well as with the conceptual analysis and theories of power. More recently, I have worked on interpretivist methodologies (process tracing and notions of causality) and critical geopolitics.
