I am a researcher at the University of Freiburg (Seminar für Politikwissenschaft) and at the Social Data Science and AI Lab (SODA, LMU Department of statistics) as well as an external fellow at the Mannheim Centre for European Social Research (MZES). Previously, I worked at the European University Institute (Florence, Italy) and the University of Bern (Switzerland). I conduct research in the areas of political sociology, methodology and computational social science. Google Scholar provides an overview of my published research and published working papers.

Together with Denis Cohen and Lion Berens I am writing a book on Applied Causal Analysis & Machine Learning. Together with Camille Landesvatter, I work on my DFG-funded project TRUSTME: Measuring and explaining Trust. I also regularly teach workshops on data visualization, machine learning and shiny at Gesis.
