I am a pre-doctoral research fellow at the Chair of Comparative Politics of Thomas M. Meyer at the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin.

I hold BA and MA degrees in Political Science by the University of Vienna and a BSc (WU) degree in Business, Economics and Social Sciences by the Vienna University of Economics and Business.

From 2016 to 2019 I worked as a student and teaching assistant at the Department of Government (University of Vienna). I worked as a research assistant for the Austrian National Election Study (AUTNES) and as teaching assistant for Comparative Politics and Quantitative Methods of Political Science.

My research interests include parties and party competition, electoral campaigns, political communication and political micro-targeting.
