I am interested in political participation, political sociology, democratization, political generations, and quantitative methods. I completed a doctorate in political science at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin. My doctoral thesis combined longitudinal and multilevel modelling to examine the effect of legacies of repression and mobilization on the development of political protest in postcommunist democracies. Prior to beginning my doctoral studies, I completed a BSc and an MSc in Political Science at Université de Montréal, Canada. Since my nomination for a Freies Wissen Fellowship, I have tried to implement the principles of open science (open data, open reproducible methods, and open access) in my own research.
