I am currently a postdoctoral research fellow at the Max Planck Institute for the Study of Religious and Ethnic Diversity in Göttingen, where I began a project on writing a non-ideal theory of democratizing refugee camps. I am a trained political theorist and have received my PhD in Political Theory at Central European University (CEU) in 2020 (while it was still in Budapest), but like to dabble in sociology and other political science research, too.

Prior to joining the Max Planck Institute, I have held various visiting positions at the University of Oxford (Refugee Studies Centre), the University of Amsterdam and the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars in Washington D.C

My research focuses on the theory, ethics and politics of refugeehood. I have worked on the definition of refugeehood, arguing that we should move to understand refugees as those politically oppressed, and have published on the rights of refugees in displacement. I am broadly interested in all matters concerning refugees, migration, political theory, as well as sociology. If you want to know more about my work, please visit the “Research” page on this website and send me a mail if you have trouble accessing any.

If you are more interested in shorter articles aimed at the general public, please go to “Media”. My work has appeared in Open Democracy, Social Europe, Daily Nous, Refugees Deeply and Rethinking Refuge, amongst others.
