Welcome

I am a postdoc in political science at the University of Zurich and the Digital Democracy Lab, working on conflicts around democracy, immigration, digitalization and patterns of party competition. Next to classical political science methods, I use (and teach) text-as-data, webscraping and various types of digital trace data in my research.

You can find information about me, my research, publications, selected work in progress and my teaching profile. If you are interested in my teaching, you can also have a look at my example course on text analysis.

Some of the things I’d like you to know about me: I have recently been awarded the PolMeth Europe Emerging Scholar Award for Contributions to Political Methodology at the first European PolMeth Conference in March 2021. One of my papers has won the Best Presentation Award at the European Symposium on Societal Challenges in Computational Social Science and was just published by Political Behavior. Another paper was published last year by the European Journal of Political Research. You can read both as open access articles. Two papers accepted at Political Communication and the Swiss Political Science Review are available as preprints.
