Areas of expertise
I am an interdisciplinary oriented social scientist currently affiliated as senior researcher in European studies to the Centre for Parliamentary Research at University of Turku, Finland.
My empirical research focuses on European integration since 1945 as a political phenomenon, Germany and Europe, European policy networks, Cold War and post Cold War intelligence history, and on Transatlantic relations from European perspective.
My theoretical and methodological interests revolve around all kind of computational/digital research (e.g. network analysis, computational discourse analysis, text/data mining), integration theories, EU theories, geoeconomics, as well around structuralists approaches to politics (especially Johan Galtung, agent-structure theory).
