Supervision

I am always excited to supervise PhD students who share a genuine interest in politics and have research interests that overlap with mine.

My supervision will be most useful to you if

  • you are working in the subfield of comparative politics with a focus on non-Western countries, 
  • you plan to use surveys and experiments in your dissertation or conduct qualitative discourse analysis.

Do not hesitate contacting me if you have any questions! 

Current Supervision:
