This is my professional website. I started it as a master’s student writing my dissertation on cosmopolitanism. Since then I wrote a Ph.D. thesis on Anacharsis Cloots, whom I identified as a figure of ‘cosmopolitan republicanism’. The monograph based on my thesis will be published in 2023 by De Gruyter and won the 10th anniversary open access competition.
From 1 September 2019 to 31 January 2023, I was a postdoctoral researcher at the Centre for Privacy Studies, University of Copenhagen. My research focused primarily on 17th-century Helmstedt with Hermann Conring‘s private teaching of legal and political thought as well as his library, and the construction of the private library at Chatsworth House and Hardwick Hall by Thomas Hobbes.
Since 1 Feburary 2023, I am a postdoctoral researcher at the University King Juan Carlos, at the research group CINTER (Courts, Images, Nobility, TERritory). I have won an EU-funded María Zambrano grant for the attraction of international talents. My project focuses on the private library of Don Juan José de Austria (1629-1679).
My research interests lie within intellectual history, legal history, and the history of knowledge. I am interested in private libraries and the ordering of knowledge, its actors, and the circulation of ideas. I am also interested in the teaching of legal history and how the discipline emerged and evolved at European universities.
