07.09.2017 | Ingrid Marie Fossum

My name is Lisa Hirsch and I am a new PhD student at the department and the behavioural section. Originally I am from Vienna, where I also studied: I hold an MA in Political Science and a BSc in Statistics, both from the University of Vienna. My research interests include (behaviour of actors in) legislatures, party competition as well as the application of factorial survey experiments in political science.

My PhD project aims to answer the question of why MPs in Western European parliaments use written parliamentary questions and whether this can be connected to changes in the modes of party competition and the rise of issue politics. How can personal characteristics MPs show, such as party affiliation, specialization, gender or regional background explain what issues they address in their questions?

I am delighted to be here and look forward to meeting you. My office is in building 1331, room 213, please feel free to drop by!
