Welcome to my Website!

I am Associate Professor of International Relations at the Department of Political Science, University of Innsbruck. I am also Dean of Studies at our Innsbruck School of Social and Political Sciences.

In my research, I primarily focus on Foreign Policy Analysis (group decision making, traits and perceptions, discourse networks), US Foreign and Security Policy as well as on (Counter)Terrorism.

Have a closer look at my current research projects, my list of publications and my courses to learn more about me and my work.
