Welcome to my website!
I am a political scientist who specialises in European Union fiscal policymaking and implementation as well as in comparative federalism. I work as a postdoctoral researcher of the Working Group on Public Administration at the Department of Politics and Public Administration at the University of Konstanz.
My research interests include EU integration and Europeanisation, comparative (fiscal) federalism, policy implementation, and corruption. Methodologically, I mainly use systematic content analysis, process tracing, and case-oriented and set-theoretic research methods.
Monograph "Fiscal Integration and Administration in the European Union", under contract with Palgrave Macmillan, series "European Administrative Governance"
"I am interested in how & why states transfer competence over so-called “core state powers” – specifically, fiscal policy as arguably the quintessence of national sovereignty – to the European Union (EU), and how & why they implement EU fiscal policy domestically. In one sentence: what is the interplay between fiscal integration & fiscal Europeanization?"
