Welcome! Since July 2017 I am a research fellow at the Mannheim Centre for European Social Research (MZES). Before I spent two years as a Max Weber Fellow at the European University Institute. In April 2015 I finished my PhD at the Institute of Political Science at the University of Bern. Before I studied at the University of Konstanz, the University of Pompeu Fabra and at Sciences Po Bordeaux. During my studies I spent longer periods in Tunisia and Vietnam.

My areas of interest include political sociology - trust, attitudes, values and polarization - and research methods - measurement, causal inference and data visualization and data science more generally. On this website you will find information about my research and maybe occasionally a post about something that is somehow related to my research. You can find my papers under ‘research’ on this website and/or on Google Scholar, SSRN and Research Gate and occasionally I tweet.
