Welcome! I am a research fellow & project director at the Mannheim Centre for European Social Research (MZES). Previously, I worked at the European University Institute and the University of Bern. I conduct research in the areas of political sociology, -behavior, -communication, and methodology. Please find different studies under projects and publications. Google Scholar provides an overview of my published research.

Together with Denis Cohen I also started the book project "Applied Causal Analysis (with R)" under contract with Chapman & Hall/CRC. And together with Camille Landesvatter, I work on my DFG-funded project "TRUSTME: Measuring and explaining Trust". Finally, I teach Research Design, Computational Social Science, and Data Visualization.
