About me

I am a Ph.D. student of political science at the Center for Doctoral Studies in Social and Behavioral Sciences (CDSS) of the University of Mannheim, Germany.

I work as a research and teaching assistant at the Chair of European Politics of Thomas König where I teach courses on the domestic effects of globalization and quantitative methods in international relations.

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

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 study the 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.
