_MG_1364-2iI am a lecturer in political science at the Helmut Schmidt University/University of the Federal Armed Forces Hamburg. 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.
