I am PhD candidate at the Graduate School of Economic and Social Sciences (GESS) at the University of Mannheim.
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.
