Research Interests

My PhD project has the working title "Conflict and Cooperation in International River Basins" and I examine interaction between states that share one or more river basins. General measures for conflict and cooperation such as war onsets, joint memberships in international organizations, trade and alliances will be examined. Also, more river specific interactions, including water treaties and water specific events will be investigated.
