As an accomplished researcher in geopolitics, I actively contribute to national and international research projects and consortia, such as FFG in Austria and Horizon Europe. My participation in such projects helps deepen my understanding of evolving geopolitical developments and continually broadens my expertise. In addition to project-based research, I also contribute to the global discourse through my writing. I author book chapters, articles, and other scholarly contributions for international and European institutes, think tanks, foundations, and organizations. My published works aim to expand knowledge about geopolitical trends and risks, and to stimulate intellectual engagement with the complexities of the global system.

My research services center around understanding the global system, the risks and trends that shape it, and the transformations occurring within it – including globalization, deglobalization, systemic shifts, and fragilities. I offer in-depth analysis of the global order and the actors shaping it, providing insights into the constellations of global actors such as the USA, China, EU, Russia, India, and others. I examine their interactions and assess their impact on the overall system polarity, be it bipolar or multipolar. Furthermore, my research extends to geostrategy, geopolitics, and geoeconomics. I analyze strategic choices made by different countries and their implications on the global system. My research services offer valuable insights into the complex dynamics of the global system, empowering organizations and decision-makers to navigate an increasingly interconnected world.
