I am the Assistant Professor for Empirical Democratic Theory at the Cologne Center for Comparative Politics at the University of Cologne. I study electoral politics, voting behaviour, party system dynamics and representation in both historical and contemporary democracies, with a particular emphasis on European, and especially British, politics. My research has been published in Political Science Research and Methods.
I received my PhD in Political Science from the University of Rochester. Prior to my doctoral studies, I received a BA (Hons.) in History from the University of Oxford, and an MPhil in Political Thought & Intellectual History from the University of Cambridge.
