I am an incoming assistant professor in health and social policy at the University of Lucerne (starting in January 2023). Currently, I am an assistant professor at the Department of Political Science at Aarhus University. I obtained my PhD at the University of Bern in 2018 and I was a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Oxford between 2018 and 2021.

My research interests lie in comparative social policy and political economy of advanced democracies. More specifically, I am interested in:

  • Explaining variation in social policy and welfare policy preferences across countries and over time

  • Political determinants and consequences of socio-economic inequality

  • (Mis)perceptions of inequality, subjective social status, and their effects on electoral politics and policy representation

  • The politics of welfare state reform, austerity, and liberalization
