My research focuses on the following topics: European integration, EU politics, EU institutions, EU decision-making processes, EU law and its implementation, comparative politics, and EU's internal market including political entrepreneurship.

After completing my PhD studies in political science with distinction at the University of Vienna, I served as a lecturer on EU politics. During my doctoral studies, I was employed at the Institute for European Integration Research at the University of Vienna and served as editorial assistant for the European Integration online Papers (EIoP). Before working at the University of Vienna, for a period of four years my job involved social housing at wohnpartner, the Neighbourhood service for community housing in Vienna. From 2007 till 2009 I headed the office for an MEP in the European Parliament in Brussels and Strasbourg.

I completed a postgraduate specialisation programme in European Studies at the University of Vienna and obtained my master's degree from the University of Innsbruck.
