  • Postdoctoral Researcher, University of Hamburg
I am a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Faculty of Economic and Social Sciences at the University of Hamburg. I obtained my Ph.D. from the Graduate School of Economic and Social Sciences at the University of Mannheim in 2019.

My research focuses on Political Economy and Judicial Politics. In my dissertation, I study how group processes affect collegial decision-making at the German Federal Court. I am especially interested in research designs that closely connect (formal) theory and quantitative analysis.

Interests: Comparative Political Economy, Judicial Politics, Applied Game Theory, Political Methodology
