I am a senior researcher at the Düsseldorf Party Research Institute (PRuF) at the Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf, and the principal investigator of the project ‘Who do parties select as their electoral leaders and why?’, funded by the German Research Foundation. My research interests, in general, are new political parties, party competition, party organization, and party leadership.
