My main areas of research interest include the comparative, quantitative study of political attitudes and political behaviour as well as European Union (party) politics.


In terms of research methods, I am particularly interested in quantitative text analysis (see textbook chapters in German and English) and the analysis of public opinion data which has been part of and currently is applied in the context of my major research projects: The DFG-funded project on the political structuring of European elections, ProConEU which has been funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) as well as the current HorizonEurope projects ActEU and UNTWIST.
