I am Assistant Professor (Juniorprofessorin) at the Department of Politics and Public Administration at the University of Konstanz.  My background is in comparative politics and my main research areas are comparative federalism, party politics and immigration. Currently, I pursue two main lines of research: In my book project, I develop a theory of ideational stabilisation to explain why and how historical legacies of industrialisation influence the contemporary politics of migration in European minority regions. In a collaborative research project, we investigate how nationalist parties win elections, using Imperial Austria’s first full male suffrage election in 1907 as a test case. I studied Political Science, Slavic Languages and Philosophy at the University of Cologne, where I also received my doctorate. Before joining the University of Konstanz, I was a postdoctoral research fellow at the University of Bremen and at Pompeu Fabra University, and lectured at the Universities of Zurich and Lucerne. I am also an Associate Editor of Regional and Federal Studies.
