About me

I am a post-doctoral Research Fellow at the Mannheim Centre for European Social Research (MZES) at the University of Mannheim. I studied political science at the University of Vienna, where I received my doctoral degree in January 2023. From 2019 to 2023, I was employed as a University Assistant (pre-doc) at the Department of Government at the University of Vienna.

My research interests include political communication, parties and party competition, representation, electoral behavior, public opinion formation, as well as automated and manual content analysis of political texts.
