Thanks for stopping by!

I research politics at the Department of Political Science at the Leibniz University Hannover. I earned a degree in Politics and Administration from the University of Konstanz and a PhD in Political Science from the University of Mannheim. Before joining the Hannover Department, I was affiliated with the Austrian National Election Study and the Methods Department at the University of Vienna, as well as the Social Science Department at the University of Frankfurt. My work focuses on party politics, legislative studies and municipal politics. I am also interested in novel developments in political methodology, such as Bayesian statistics, automated text analysis and the application of big data in political research.
