About Me

Originally I am from Germany. I was born and raised near Hamburg.

From 1993 – 1997, I studied Political Science and Economics at the University of Hamburg. During my undergraduate and postgraduate studies, I was mainly interested in the political economy of development, especially the role of the state in development, European integration, EU enlargement and the politics and policy of the European Union.

In 1997, I came to the London School of Economics and Political Science to take an MSc in European Politics and Policy. I completed the MSc with a dissertation on ‘The Power of the European Parliament under the Co-decision Procedure: A Reassessment of Tsebelis and Garrett’.

From 1998 – 2003, I studied for a PhD at the London School of Economics and Political Science. My PhD thesis examined the reform of the civil service in post-communist Hungary. It was supervised by Prof Dr Klaus H. Goetz (now, University of Potsdam) and Dr Vesselin Dimitrov (LSE).

From 2002 – 2004, I was a Tutorial Fellow in Comparative Public Administration and Public Policy at the London School of Economics and Political Science.

In 2004, I became a Lecturer in European Politics at the University of Nottingham, School of Politics and International Relations. I have been Professor of Political Science since 2015.

From 2007 – 2008, I was a Max Weber Post-doctoral Fellow at the European University Institute in Florence. During the year at EUI, I was mentored by Prof Peter Mair from the Department of Social and Political Science.

From 2013 - 2014, I was a Fernand Braudel Senior Fellow at the European University Institute in Florence. I spent the spring of 2014 in Florence. During the time, I worked on a project on the quality of government in Central and Eastern Europe and the Western Balkans.

I have been a Professor of Political Science at the University of Nottingham, School of Politics and International Relations since August 2015.
