In my research I mainly focus on populism, voter and party behavior, and on party competition in different contexts.
First, I am particularly interested in analyzing the effect of the rise and success of populist parties on voter behavior and party competition. I analyze the effect of populism on voters‘ political attitudes and their attitudes towards political representation, but I am also interested in shedding light on the impact of populist’s rise on other parties and on party competition. Second, I focus on analyzing the success of Independent Local Lists (Kommunale Wählergemeinschaften) on the local level. Here I analyze the impact of populist parties on the success of Independent Local Lists, but also on the attitudes and behavior of their candidates and voters.
