CV

I’m a research fellow at the WZB Berlin Social Science Center, where I work in the department of Democracy and Democratization.

My current research focuses on democratic and populist attitudes within young European adults and how that translates to their electoral availability for populist parties.

In the past I have been working together with Wolfgang Merkel and John Keane on a project titled “The changing forms and functions of elections since 1945: Global Trends”. My broader research interests lie in comparative democracy studies, especially in citizens’ perception of legitimacy, populist attitudes and electoral behavior.
