Welcome! I am a research fellow at the Mannheim Centre for European Social Research (MZES). Previously, I worked and 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 and methods.

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 and I am working on a twitter bot named tp_stats and a self-updating real-time report under www.tweetingpoliticians.com (check out the tweets on the right).
