Hello! I am glad you found your way to my webpage.
Here you can find everything about my work as an assistant professor of International Relations at Webster Vienna Private University and my podcast, The 1020 (now also on YouTube).
My main field of research is political theory and international relations, with a particular emphasis on how culture, values, and ideologies influence state behaviour. I have written and published about the interplay of culture and identity and how it affects social capital formation and social cohesion.
Besides my academic work I am always happy and honored to provide my expertise on contemporary US politics and world affairs for national and international broadcasters, including Sky News Australia and The Hill TV.
You can also find my commentary on political issues in newspapers such as the Wall Street Journal, Newsweek, Unherd, Spiked, the Jerusalem Post, the Washington Examiner, the American Spectator, Die Presse, Der Standard, and the Wiener Zeitung among others.
All of my journalistic work can be found here as well - including some articles & interviews in German here.
I am also a geopolitical consultant who has advised Austrian politicians and organizations in the past. I take both pleasure and pride in my work, so feel free to reach out if you think there are areas of possible collaboration or cooperation.
