AboutI am a member of the history department at the Leibniz Institute of European History in Mainz and currently hold the Kurt-David-Brühl guest professorship at the Centre for Jewish Studies of the University of Graz. My research focuses on the history of Jews in modern Europe, Jewish politics, and international law. I received my PhD from University College London and have been awarded fellowships from the Arts and Humanities Research Council, the Posen Foundation, the Lady Davis Fellowship Trust at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, the Central European University, and Dartmouth College. My work has appeared in Archives juives and French Historical Studies.
