I am a Professor of Political Science at the Humboldt Universität zu Berlin. Before joining the HU, I was an Associate Professor at the Department of Government, University of Vienna. When I'm not in my office (which is, of course, rarely the case), I enjoy going for a run or a good glass of wine (not at the same time). 

I did my PhD at the Center for Doctoral Studies in Social and Behavioral Sciences (CDSS) at the Graduate School of Economic and Social Sciences (GESS), University of Mannheim, and worked at the Mannheim Centre for European Social Research (MZES). For a couple of years, I have also been involved in the Manifesto Project (MARPOR) at the Berlin Social Science Center.
