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.

Currently, I work on a book project entitled "Applied Causal Analysis (with R)" and various studies that you can find under projects. 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.
