I am an Assistant Professor at the University of Twente doing research on higher education policy at the Center for Higher Education Policy Studies. I earned a Ph.D. in Political Science from Central European University (Hungary). My teaching and research interests lie in the area of public policy, specifically higher education policy. Additionally, I am interested in issues of research design, content analysis, and conceptualization. My Ph.D. dissertation analyzed national higher education internationalization strategies from around the world using computer-assisted text analysis to lift empirical data to a conceptual level. Before coming to UT, I was a lecturer at Bard College Berlin and a tutor and academic advisor in the OLIve Refugee Education Initiatives (Germany). Previously, I was a visiting scholar doing research or teaching at the University of Yangon (Myanmar), the Federal University of Sao Carlos (Brazil), and the Center for International Higher Education at Boston College (USA).
