Welcome!

I am a pre-doctoral research fellow at the Chair of Comparative Politics of Thomas M. Meyer at the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin and a PhD student at the Berlin Graduate School of Social Sciences (BGSS).

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 research and teaching assistant at the Austrian National Election Study (AUTNES) and the Department of Government (University of Vienna).

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