I am a postdoctoral researcher at the Institute of Political Science at the University of Bern. Currently, I am working on a project in which we analyze the motivation to take over an office in municipalities. Before that, I completed my thesis at the Department of Political Science at the University of Zurich. During my PhD, I was a visiting graduate researcher at the University of California, Los Angeles (2016-2017) and at the University of Geneva (2015).
My research interests include political behavior, public policy, and political institutions. My work has appeared or is forthcoming in the American Journal of Evaluation, Evaluation and Program Planning, Governance, International Review of Administrative Sciences, Political Science Research and Methods, and the Swiss Political Science Review.
