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 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: One of my papers - which is available as a preprint - has won the Best Presentation Award at the European Symposium on Societal Challenges in Computational Social Science and was just accepted by Political Behavior. Another paper was published last year by the European Journal of Political Research. Also, I am really glad to hear any feedback on work in progress.
