I am a post-doctoral research fellow at the Varieties of Democracy (V-Dem) Institute at the University of Gothenburg, Sweden.
Why do periods of democratization and globalization occur in waves and what drives them? What role does armed conflict play? How can latent concepts such as democracy be captured appropriately for quantitative research? My research focuses on finding answers to questions such as the ones above. You find more information on my current research activities here.
In addition, I am an organizer of the Development Economics Network Berlin (DENeB).
