Jonathan Kuyper

Jonathan Kuyper is a PhD candidate at The Australian National University in the Centre for Deliberative Democracy and Global Governance.

Jonathan has really utilized the PhD as a medium for his true passion: travel. He has had visiting positions at The European University Institute (Florence) and Princeton University (New Jersey – but only an hour and a half from NYC). He has also attended conferences in several other countries in an attempt to maintain the travelling lifestyle.

For the rest of the time, he is a die-hard tennis player and fan, and adds swimming, snooker, and rock-climbing to his interests. He is also a tennis line-umpire, though travel gets in the way of doing this more regularly.
