I am a PhD candidate in Political Science in the European Politics research group at the Center for Comparative and International Studies (CIS), ETH Zurich. Funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNF) as part of its Ambizione scheme, I work for a research project on democratic backsliding in Eastern Europe headed by Dr Natasha Wunsch.
My research interests are broadly focused on democratic culture in Eastern Europe, financing of political parties, and electoral behavior. I am furthermore interested in the interaction between institutions and public opinion in Germany and post-communist Mongolia. Most recently, I have co-published on the effect of partisanship on trust in Mongolian institutions. During my studies, I have been working as a student research assistant at the Center of Political Sociology of Germany, Berlin and the Institute of Political Science, Leipzig.
