Welcome

… to my personal webpage. I am a professor of Political Science with a focus on Comparative Politics at the University of Münster. Before I worked at the University of Osnabrück and at the Max Planck Institute for the Study of Societies in Cologne. My research interests are located at the intersection of comparative political economy, democracy research, and political theory. Over the last years, I have dealt with the interplay of social and political inequality, nonvoting, and economic and social policy. I am a member of the executive council of the German Political Science Association (DVPW) and one of the speakers of the subsection on Political Economy.
