  • Postdoctoral Researcher, Leibniz University Hannover
I am a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Institute of Political Science at the Leibniz University Hannover. I obtained my Ph.D. from the Graduate School of Economic and Social Sciences at the University of Mannheim in 2020.

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: Judicial Politics, Empirical Legal Studies, Political Economy, Applied Game Theory, Political Methodology
