I am an Associate Professor of Political Science at the University of Bucharest, where I teach International Politics, Theory of International Relations and Foreign Policy Analysis. I am currently working on the topic of the regulation of private military and security companies and their accountability for gross human rights violations. I hold a PhD from the Université Libre de Bruxelles (2007) with a thesis on the Romanian foreign policy after 1989.
I have published over 40 articles in scientific journals and I have authored and co-authored 11 edited books. Some of the most important are: La politique étrangère roumaine, 1990-2006, Bruxelles, Editions de l’Université de Bruxelles, 2009; (Ed.), New Regionalism or No Regionalism? Emerging Regionalism in the Black Sea Area, London, Ashgate, 2012 (reedited by Routledge, 2016); (Ed.), “Transformarea socialistă”: politici ale regimului comunist, între ideologie şi administraţie, Iași, Polirom, 2009.
