Thesis: Populism in Parties, Politicians and Public Opinion
I am interested in how and when political actors strategically employ populism and which factors explain the variation in voting for populist parties. In my research, I develop approaches to measure and explain political positions and electoral behaviour using quantitative text analysis, causal inference and geo-spatial modelling. I hold a B.A. in Social Science from Humboldt University Berlin and an M.Sc. in Politics Research from the University of Oxford.
