I am a Post-Doctoral Fellow at the Center for Data and Methods at the University of Konstanz, Germany and the proud father of a lovely daughter.

My main research interests are in the fields of Political Economy and Political Science. I focus on understanding the role of institutions and their impact on strategic interactions in politics. Interest representation and lobbying, legislative politics, as well as bargaining and political decision-making are my main topical focus. I emphasize a strong connection of formal theory and empirical analysis.   I am currently the convenor of the ECPR standing group on Analytical Politics and Public Choice. I also serve in the council for research (Ausschuß für Forschungsfragen – AFF) and the Exam Board for the MSc in Social and Economic Data Science (SEDS) at the University of Konstanz.

As a proponent of open science, I seek to improve research practices in the discipline. The blog on this website is part of this effort.
