Short Bio

Jacob Ross is research fellow in DGAP’s Alfred von Oppenheim Center for the Future of Europe where he focuses on Franco-German relations. He had initially joined the program as a research assistant in June 2021. Previously, he worked as a research assistant at the NATO Parliamentary Assembly in Brussels. He had already gained experience within the Franco-German context while working at the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs and during his work as a parliamentary assistant to Sabine Thillaye, Chair of the European Affairs Committee of the French National Assembly.
