Welcome to my website

I am a PhD Researcher in Political Science at the University of Mannheim. I am affiliated with the Collaborative Research Center Political Economy of Reforms and the Graduate School of Economic and Social Sciences.

My research deals with international courts and cooperation. I am interested in the partisan-electoral incentives for governmental cooperation in international institutions. My published work captures some of these aspects. 

Methodologically, I am interested in text analysis and causal inference. In my dissertation, I use a variety of tools for the quantitative analysis of EU legal acts, including topic models and machine learning algorithms. I also have extensive experience with survey experimental methods to gauge public opinion about political and institutional actors.
