I am PhD candidate at the Graduate School of Economic and Social Sciences (GESS) and research associate at the Chair for Political Economy at the University of Mannheim. Currently I am also working as research associate at the Mannheim Centre for European Social Research in the Project “Experiences of Everyday Racism and Media-Mediated Racism in the (Political) Public Sphere”.
My research focuses on committee decision making and lobbying. I am especially interested in strategic information provision and the effect of behavioral information processing on decision making. In my research I use formal models, experiments and quantitative methods, particularly quantitative text analysis methods. I am also interested in social media usage on electoral campaigning and social preferences more generally.
