I joined the department as Associate Professor of Business and Politics, with focus on quantitative methods in 2019. Broadly speaking, I study political behavior at the voter and the elite level. My research is at the intersection of political psychology, political communication, and comparative politics. In my research I mostly apply quantitative text analysis techniques and hierarchical models. I am political scientist by training and received my PhD from the University of Vienna in 2012.

I mostly contribute with teaching introductory and advanced quantitative methods courses at all levels, and with substantive courses embedded in behavioral and psychological approaches to decision making.


Primary research areas
  • Electoral behavior, political attitude formation and identity politics
  • Elite political communication and interaction with the public
  • Political speech
  • Political communication on social media
