Research Agenda

Currently I work on four major research projects:

The Causes & Consequences of Extreme Party Entry

How Parties & Politicians Communicate with Voters

Diffusion of Party Ideology

Party Responsiveness

An overarching interest of mine is the application and advancement of quantitative methods. I use quantitative text analysis, multiple imputations, statistical simulations (e.g. Synthetic Control Methods), regression discontinuity designs, and experimental designs to assess my research interests. Furthermore, I have developed several figure schemes for the statistical software Stata which seek to improve existing data visualization practices (see: here).
