Welcome! I am a master's student in Politics and Public Administration at the University of Konstanz. My research focuses on whether (1) artificial intelligence can be used to conduct qualitative interviews in large-scale surveys and (2) mass preferences over political representation.

I am currently a master's student in Politics and Public Administration at the University of Konstanz. I hold an MSc in Political Sociology from the London School of Economics (LSE). In addition, I work as a research assistant for Prof. Michael M. Bechtel at the University of Cologne and for Prof. David Y. Yang at Harvard University.
