I am currently a guest researcher at the Department ‘Anthropology of Politics and Governance’, working on a project about the spatial politics of refugee facilities. This project is funded by the Fritz Thyssen Stiftung. Previously, I have held positions as lecturer and researcher at the Charles University in Prague, visiting research fellow at the University of Copenhagen, Fulbright visiting research student at New York University, and visiting research student at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem.

Trained as a political scientist with a focus on International Relations, I developed an interest in ethnographic methods during my PhD studies. In my doctoral thesis, which drew on 14 months of fieldwork in Israel/Palestine, I investigated mechanisms and practices which normalize everyday life in Israeli settlements in the West Bank. Combining these interests, my current research uses ethnography to study politics and explore how the everyday, the political, and the international intersect.
