_MG_1364-2iI am currently a DAAD visiting assistant professor at the Center for European Studies, University of Florida. Before, I was a lecturer in political science at the Helmut Schmidt University/University of the Federal Armed Forces Hamburg and a temporary professor of public policy and state politics at the University of Duisburg-Essen. Prior to this, I worked at the Leuphana University of Lüneburg and the University of Bonn, where I finished my Ph.D in 2012 with a study on election campaigning in the German states.

My research primarily focuses on populism and populist parties in European comparison, parties and party systems, as well as administrative reforms and political strategy.
