I am a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Transformations of Democracy Unit at WZB Berlin, directed by Daniel Ziblatt. From April to June 2024, I am a Visiting Fellow at Nuffield College, Oxford University. In 2022, I was a Visiting Fellow of the Center for European Studies at Harvard University. Earlier that year, I obtained my doctoral degree at the Chair of Comparative Political Behavior at Humboldt University Berlin and graduated from DYNAMICS, a joint PhD program of Humboldt University and the Hertie School.

I am interested in Comparative Politics and Political Behavior, with a focus on challenges to contemporary democracies. My primary research areas cover democratic representation, participation and voter mobilization, as well as societal and electoral polarization. I study the emergence of these phenomena, as well as their implications for policy-making and democratic resilience.

My work has been published, or is forthcoming, in journals such as the Journal of Politics, Comparative Political Studies, and West European Politics. In my research projects, I employ a broad range of quantitative analyses, such as field and survey experiments, quasi-experimental designs, and quantitative text analyses with large language models. For a comprehensive overview of my ongoing projects and previous publications, please visit my Publications & Research page.

I also enjoy teaching classes on political behavior, research design and applied research methods.
