Empirical Political Science | University Oldenburg
PhotoI am a Professor of Political Science / Political System of Germany at the Social Science Department at the University of Oldenburg. I hold a Dr. rer. pol. from the Freie Universität (FU) Berlin and a MA in Political Science, Public Law and Economic Policy from the University of Münster. My research (Google Scholar, Research Gate, SSRN, ORCID) is focused on political decision making in comparative public policies, behavioral public adminnistration, political sociology and social science research methods.  Currently I am conducting two research projects funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG), one on political oversight and one on need-based redistributive justice (FOR2104).
