I am an Emile Noël Post-Doctoral Fellow at the Jean Monnet Center for International and Regional Economic Law & Justice at the New York University School of Law. I recently defended my Ph.D. thesis at the University of Hamburg (Germany). Before coming to NYU I was a visiting researcher at the University of California, Berkeley.
My research focuses on questions within international law and constitutional law. Three themes are particularly interesting to me: First, I am analyzing how information is processed in legal institutions. Most recently, I wrote a paper on the use of online open source evidence by the International Criminal Court:
- A New Type of Evidence? Cyberinvestigations, Social Media, and Online Open Source Video Evidence at the ICC
Second, I am currently working on a paper about the institutional design of courts. My paper will address normative questions of legal authority by drawing on insights from decision-making theory, social psychology, and behavioral science.
Third, I am studying the deployment of technology within legal domains. Lately, I have written articles (in German) about algorithmic fairness and the criminal justice system as well as the use of artificial intelligence in the welfare state.
I hold a master’s degree in politics and government from the London School of Economics and Political Science and a master’s in international law and European Union law from the University of Hamburg. I also studied philosophy at King’s College London.
