About me

I am a graduate student in Politics at the Department of Politics and International Relations, University of Oxford. Before joining Oxford, I graduated in social sciences from Humboldt University Berlin, specialized in comparative politics. I also studied at City University of Hong Kong, University College London and Technical University of Berlin. As a political scientist-in-training, I have been focusing on political transitions, democratization and social movements. Geographically, I am focusing on the Asia-Pacific region and here in particular Myanmar and Hong Kong. My current research project is dedicated to the role of civil liberties and protests in democratic transitions. Beside my research activities, I am an internet entrepreneur specializing in domain name brokerage, a topic that has recently caught my research interest, too.

Main Research Themes: Political Transitions, Social Movements, Asia-Pacific
