I am a tenure-track assistant professor (‘Juniorprofessorin’) for Comparative Politics at European University Viadrina. I work on conflicts around democracy, immigration, digitalization and patterns of party competition. Most of my research studies European countries, especially Central-Eastern Europe. Next to classical political science methods, I use (and teach) text-as-data, webscraping and various types of digital trace data in my research. Until July 2022, I was a postdoc in political science at the University of Zurich and the Digital Democracy Lab.

You can find information about me, my research, publications 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 am a co-organizer of the Summer School for Women in Political Methodology. I have been awarded the PolMeth Europe Emerging Scholar Award for Contributions to Political Methodology at the first European PolMeth Conference in March 2021. Previously, one of my papers has won the Best Presentation Award at the European Symposium on Societal Challenges in Computational Social Science (full paper).
