Welcome to my homepage.
I am a senior researcher (Oberassistent) focusing on Comparative Politics at the University of Zurich (CH). My main research interests lie in the field of Comparative Politics comprising mainly questions on policy responsiveness of political actors and party competition more generally. Specifically my research aims to understand if and how the public can succesfully influence the policies and positions of political parties and legislators. I am also eager to integrate a range of research methods in my research such as time-series-cross-section analysis, quantitative text analysis, simulations and field experiments.
