Researcher. University of Vienna, Dep. of Government
Welcome to my personal page.

I am a postdoctoral researcher at the Department of Government (University of Vienna). This webpage provides information on my research and teaching activities.

My research focuses on political communication, party competition, and parliaments. I’m also into the politics of constitutions and judicial politics. My methodological emphasis is on text analysis and experimental research.

In my dissertation (and joint work with Marcelo Jenny), I use sentiment analysis and crowdcoding to study the tonality of campaign messages.

Current projects

With Lisa Hirsch and Marcelo Jenny, we study how partisanship affects perceptions of negative campaigning. In joint work with Alejandro Ecker and Laurenz Ennser-Jedenastik, we are exploring Austrian asylum adjudications. Together with Marcelo Jenny, Elena Rudkowsky, Michael Sedlmair, Mathias Wastian and Stefan Emrich, we use word embeddings for measuring negativity in parliamentary debates. In joint work with Thomas M. Meyer and Markus Wagner, we study which party campaign messages attract media coverage.
