I am an Assistant Professor (W1) of Political Science at the Goethe University Frankfurt, Germany. Prior to joining the Goethe University, I was a researcher at the German Development Institute/Deutsches Institut für Entwicklungspolitik (DIE), Bonn as well as a postdoctoral researcher at the Zukunftskolleg and the Department of Politics and Public Administration at the University of Konstanz. In my research, I study political violence and its effect on individual attitudes and group dynamics, (forced) migration, conflict management and conflict resolution in armed conflicts as well as quantitative research methodology. My work has been published in International Interaction, the Journal of Peace Research, Political Analysis and the Stata Journal.
