I am a Research Fellow at the WZB Berlin Social Science Center working on the project “Political Legitimacy in Times of Crisis” (PolLegKris) funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research.
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 Fellows at the University of Mannheim. I also have designed and delivered various political science courses 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 USAID.
My research and teaching interests include democracy, political institutions, voting behavior, parties, political representation, migration, gender, Europe, Latin America, political text analysis, survey research, and experiments.
