I’m an Assistant Professor in the Department of Economics at the University of Vienna, Austria. My primary research interest is in the political economy of conflict.
More precisely, I'm interested in the determinants of identification, both social and political, and consequences of such attitudes on voting behavior.
I mainly study these questions using historical data. I'm convinced that sufficient knowledge of historical events can help identify quasi-natural experiments. These events can then be exploited to answer a broad range of questions that are policy relevant nowadays.
