My re­search focuses on the complexity of trans­formation and challenges one-size fits all solutions. 

In my research, trans­formations of political violence mainly relate to peace­building processes after violent conflict. I am in­terested in social and political dynamics of change, in particular re­garding demographic groups such as women and girls, victims or perpe­trators, as well as various notions of justice that are being pursued in the process. I hope to con­tribute to an under­standing of transformation that is situated and loca­lized in particular post-conflict con­texts and that challenges sim­plified global, one-size fits all solu­tions for times of transition.
