Welcome!

Thank you for visiting my homepage.

I am a post-doctoral research fellow at the Center for Civil Society Research located at the WZB Berlin Social Science Center.

My research focuses on protest movements, political engagement, party competition, political communication, and applied quantitative methods, particularly quantitative text analysis and automated event extraction.

In the WZB Protest Monitoring, a BMBF- and BMI-financed research project on political radicalization and protest in Germany, I am responsible for the construction of a database on protest events in Germany.

I obtained my doctorate at the European University Institute in 2020, where I was also involved in the ERC-POLCON project. In my PhD project, I engaged with the impact of populist radical right parties on party competition in Europe. Methodologically, I take a broad interest in quantitative methods, with a particular focus on text-as-data approaches.
