Welcome! I am a research fellow at the Mannheim Centre for European Social Research (MZES). Previously, I worked or studied at the European University Institute, the University of Bern, the University of Konstanz, the University of Pompeu Fabra and at Sciences Po Bordeaux. During my studies I spent longer periods in Africa and Asia.

In my research I mainly focus on political sociology (e.g. trust, polarization) and methods. Regarding the latter I am interested in causal inference, experiments, text data, data visualization etc. On this website you will find information about my research (projects & publications), teaching and some software projects I pursue (+ I write reviews). My research is also indexed or published on Google Scholar, SSRN and Research Gate. Occasionally I tweet.
