Welcome to my homepage.
I am a senior researcher (Oberassistent) focusing on Comparative Politics at the University of Zurich (CH). Previously, I was a visitor at UC San Diego from December 2014 – June 2015. I recently successfully defended my PhD under the examination of Lawrence Ezrow and Shane Martin. My main research interests lie in the field of Comparative Politics comprising questions of policy responsiveness to protest, party competition, government formation, strategies of niche parties, quantitative text analysis and quantitative methods.
