I am Professor of German Politics 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 migration. A common theme connecting most of my research projects is how diverse cultural, ethnic, and national identities affect the functioning of  democracy; currently I am most interested in exploring how we can integrate insights about issue-competition from the field of party politics with insights about the persuasive power of identity-appeal from social psychology and the field of ethnic politics. 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 held positions at Pompeu Fabra University, and the Universities of Bremen and Zurich. I am an Associate Editor of Regional and Federal Studies.
