Welcome to my personal homepage! I am Professor for Political Science, Qualitative Methods at the Bremen International Graduate School of Social Sciences (BIGSSS), co-hosted by the University of Bremen and Jacobs University. My research interests are the dynamics of party competition and parties as organizations. I am also working on social science methods with an emphasis on case studies, Qualitative Comparative Analysis (QCA), and multimethod research.
David Kühn and I are excited that our article Are there really two cultures? A pilot study on the application of qualitative and quantitative methods in political science is online first with the European Journal of Political Research.
