Welcome

I am an assistant professor at the Department of Political Science at Aarhus University. Previously, I was a postdoc at University of Oxford between 2018 and 2021, where I remain an associate member at Nuffield College and the Institute for New Economic Thinking. I obtained my PhD at the University of Bern in 2018.

My research focuses on the relationship between economic and political outcomes in advanced democracies. I am studying the impact of income inequality on policy preferences and voting, and how this impact has changed over the past few decades. I am also interested in how the politics of inequality and redistribution are shaped by characteristics such as income, class, or subjective social status, as well as ideology.

On this page, you will find updated information about my CV, current research (including abstracts and working papers, where available), publications, and teaching.
