Welcome to my personal homepage! I am Professor for Methods of Comparative Political Research at the Cologne Center for Comparative Politics at the University of Cologne. My research interests are social science methods with an emphasis on case studies, Qualitative Comparative Analysis (QCA), and multimethod research. Substantively, I work on political parties.
