I am a business intelligence (BI) analyst working for OCEANSAPART in Berlin. Prior to this, I was a research fellow for 6 years in the Institutions and Political Inequality research unit at the Wissenschaftszentrum Berlin für Sozialforschung (WZB).

I obtained my Ph.D. in Comparative Politics in August 2017, from the Central European University, Budapest, with a topic at the intersection of political economy and political behavior: how the dynamics between party ideological shifts, economic inequality, and individual-level political participation unfold over time.

I’m interested in applied statistical modeling, with particular application to hierarchical data structures and Bayesian estimation, and in data visualization. I’ve been an R user since 2008. More recently, I have started coding in Python and Stan as well.
