Bio:

Motivated by the need to understand the continuing recurrence of conflicts in the world, my research interest on conflict studies became increasingly focused on post-civil war stability.
In my research at the University of Mannheim, I analyze leadership survival – in particular in post-conflict settings. Using a wide range of quantitative methods, I further explore questions on conflict elections, women’s substantive representation as well as the interplay of natural resources and foreign direct investment.

I further co-founded a data science blog (Methods Bites) that publishes posts on cutting-edges methods in social sciences.
I hold a Bachelor’s as well as a Master’s degree in Political Science from the University of Mannheim and gained international experience during my stays abroad at Rice University (USA), Universitet Uppsala (Sweden), and SciencesPo Paris (France).
