I am a Research Fellow at the WZB Berlin Social Science Center. Since August 2016, I have served as a Research Fellow with the Varieties of Democracy Institute (V-Dem) at the University of Gothenburg and since 2017 as an Associate Editor of Representation, a Journal of Representative Democracy.
I received my PhD from the University of Mannheim. Before joining the WZB, I worked at Sciences Po Paris, with the Electoral Integrity Project at the University of Sydney, and was a Marie Curie Fellow at the University of Mannheim.
I have designed and delivered various political science courses and seminars at the Universities of Mannheim, Oslo, Gothenburg, Humboldt in Berlin and Sciences Po Paris and worked as a consultant for different national and international organisations including the European Commission and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID).
My research and teaching interests include democracy, representation, electoral behaviour, social media, migration, survey research, experiments and text analysis.
