Welcome

I am a Post-doctoral Researcher at the Group of Comparative Politics at Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz. I conduct research on political attitudes and behaviour of citizens, political parties and political economy. A particular focus of my work is the interplay between economic globalization and domestic politics. Much of my work is comparative in nature, studying established democracies, yet part of it looks at German politics in particular. After obtaining a Diplom (Master’s equivalent) from the University of Hamburg in 2009, I completed a PhD at the Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz in 2015. My work has been published in peer-reviewed journals such as Electoral Studies, European Union Politics, Journal of European Social Policy, Party Politics, Political Studies and West European Politics.

On these pages, you find information on my past and current research projects, a list of publications, a CV as well as replication materials supplementing my published research.  See also my Google Scholar page and my SSRN profile or follow me on Twitter. I am happy to answer any questions concerning my research—feel free to get in touch.
