I am a political scientist working on political organisations (mainly parties and labour unions) and their strategies, political mobilisation and social science methodology.


I studied politics and history at the universities of Aachen, Prague and Potsdam between 2003-2010. After that, I combined my strong interest in mathematics and programming with my social science background and my passion for the mechanisms of political organisations. In 2017, I obtained my PhD with a work on “Young people in old politics” from the Faculty of Social Sciences at the University of Duisburg-Essen. I am interested in the individual perspective on institutional and organisational dynamics, and especially in how to measure and analyse it based on rich qualitative and quantitative data.

I currently work as a Senior Advisor in the student support department of the Hans Böckler Foundation in Düsseldorf, an organisation I have been working for since 2010. In addition, I teach social science methodology at the Institute of Political Science at the University of Duisburg-Essen.  My previous work includes several applied research projects for political parties and labour unions as well as positions as trainer and advisor in the area of quality assurance in higher education. I am trained in diversity oriented career coaching, peer coaching and in solution focused counseling, all with a special focus on students and young researchers.
