I am a post-doctoral researcher and lecturer at the Chair of Comparative Politics at the University of  Potsdam, Germany.

My current research mainly focuses on the role of legislatures for democratic consolidation and the influence of legislative organization on public policy and opinion, opposition behavior and government formation.

My research has been published or is forthcoming, amongst others, in the American Political Science Review, Democratization, the International Journal of Human Rights, the Journal of Legislative Studies,  and West European Politics.
