Multimethod research

My work on multi-method research deals with the integration of case studies and process tracing with regression analysis and Qualitative Comparative Analysis (QCA). Based on my paper in Comparative Political Studies, I explore several issues concerning the combination of case studies and regressions. Work in various stages of progress concerns the generalization of process-tracing insights in multimethod research (with David Kühn); formalized case selection in QCA and the linkage between QCA and mechanisms (with Carsten Q. Schneider); formalized case selection based on regression analysis.
