Personal profile

Research interests

My main research interests lie in international natural resources law and the relation between international law, power, and politics. My Ph.D. project examines how practices of 'informal' international law-making govern how sovereignty over natural resources should be exercised. I use an interdisciplinary analytical perspective that combines insights of critical approaches to international law, constructivist international relations, and Foucaultian governmentality studies.
