Research Topic

Over the last decade, I have worked with European, American, Russian, and Japanese academic institutions while advancing research activities in Washington DC, New York, Geneva, Moscow, and Tokyo. Based on these transcontinental experiences, my research focuses on global International Relations (IR) theory, peacebuilding, and the role of non-Western powers (especially Japan, Russia, and China) in the transformation of international orders. Through my professional networks in Geneva, I have been actively involved in the delivery of executive education programmes for UN officials and in policy consulting projects for governments and international organizations.
