I am a post-doctoral researcher within the research project "Coordination Committees as Parliamentary Agenda Setter" (CoCoPAS) at the University of Bamberg (Germany).
My research interests lie in the broad areas of comparative political institutions, European legislative politics (focused on the European Parliament), parties, political careers (particularly candidate selection), parliamentary behavior, representation and gender. I am furthermore working on international political economy topics, public opinion, and multi-level governance.
My work has been published in European Union Politics, International Organization, Legislative Studies Quarterly and other peer reviewed journals. My book "Re-Selecting Members of the European Parliament" on party goals and candidate selection for the European Parliament elections in Germany has been published with Springer VS.
On this website you will find information on myself, a detailed CV, and publications. Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have questions regarding the topics on this website.
