I am the Assistant Professor of Empirical Democratic Theory at the Cologne Center for Comparative Politics at the University of Cologne, as well as an Associated Member of the Cluster of Excellence ECONtribute: Markets & Public Policy. I use formal and statistical methods to study electoral competition, party politics, voting behaviour and political representation, mainly in post-industrial democracies. My work has been published in Political Science Research and Methods.
I received my PhD in Political Science from the University of Rochester. Prior to my doctoral studies, I received a BA (Hons.) in History from the University of Oxford, and an MPhil in Political Thought & Intellectual History from the University of Cambridge.
