About me

I am a postdoctoral researcher at the Chair of European Politics at the University of Mannheim where I teach courses on the domestic effects of globalization and quantitative methods in international relations.

My core research interests lie in the intersection of Comparative Politics and International Political Economy. They center around the consequences of globalization processes such as trade and immigration on domestic politics. In particular, I am interested in the economic and political geography of structurally declining regions.

In my dissertation, I studied the economic and political effects of place-based policy in Germany for political accountability and whether such policy responses are able to mitigate the electoral success of challenger parties such as the populist right. I defended my thesis at the Center for Doctoral Studies in Social and Behavioral Sciences (CDSS) of the University of Mannheim in May 2022.

Between 2016 and 2020, I worked as an editorial assistant for the American Political Science Review edited by a team of scholars from the University of Mannheim and the London School of Economics and Political Science.
