I am a doctoral candidate, visiting researcher at the London School of Economics, and a combat veteran (Afghanistan, Gulf of Aden). My research is funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation. I use sociological and historical approaches to understand the relations between war, state, and society with a specific focus on the neglected importance of war for understanding social practices. My work has been published in the European Journal of International Relations and the Journal of Military and Strategic Studies. I also am deputy editor for the journal Millennium.
