The underlying theme of most of my research is the political conflicts between states, especially great powers, and the prospects of cooperation in international organizations and beyond. I have been exploring this agenda from various angles, most recently within the project GLOWIN that I am proud to lead (2021–2024) and within the Horizon Europe project ENSURED (2023–2026) where I lead one of the work packages.

A prominent angle I have been recently exploring is that of the information the public around the world receives about international politics and major global agendas through news media. There I have studied the media coverage of the war in Ukraine (2023), of the EU in connection to the war and to the COVID-19 pandemic (2024, 2023), or of the United Nations (2024, 2023, 2021).

More broadly, I have studied extensively great power conflicts within major International Organizations, such as the United Nations (2021, 2021, 2017) or the World Trade Organization (2020, 2020, 2019, 2019). I have studied these conflicts from the perspective of the internal functioning of the organizations (2020, 2019), with a focus on their staff (2022, 2021, 2021), decision-making (2020, 2019), as well as political games states play across organizations (2021). I have also contributed to research that explores these matters in the context of the EU (2024, 2022, 2015).
