Welcome to my homepage!

I am professor of international comparative public policy at the Geschwister-Scholl-Institute for Political Science, LMU Munich. Prior to taking up this position, I held posts in St Gallen, Florence, and Bremen (JUB, SOCIUM). I hold a PhD from the University of Essex and an MA from the University of Konstanz. I served as executive board member of the German Political Science Association (2018-2021) and its Political Economy Section (2015-2021) and represent political science in the German Data Forum (since 2020).

My substantive research interests lie at the intersection of international political economy, comparative politics, and public policy. I work on social and tax policy worldwide and historically. I am furthermore interested in research design, experiments, and quantitative methods.
