Research & Publications

International relations and analysis of political reality are some of my greatest passions. I received my MA in International Relations and European Studies from the Central European University in Budapest, Hungary. My thesis topic was “Ukraine and NATO: The Failure of Rhetorical Action.”

I am currently a PhD Candidate at the Department of Political Science of the National University of Singapore. I am working on the dissertation with the working subject on the resurgence of nationalism (neo-nationalism) globally as a response against the rise of the capital-state. My broader research interests include International Relations theory, globalization and the state, nationalism, transnationalism, and cosmopolitanism.
