I am a PostDoc at GESIS — Leibniz-Institute for the Social Sciences, and still affiliated with my alma mater, the Cologne Center for Comparative Politics, University of Cologne. I am a big fan of democracy, political elites and computational social sciences. I am also part of the MEDem project (medem.eu), building up an infrastrucutre for research on democratic countries. In my spare time, I train martial arts and love going for hikes.
