In my project I shed light on how voters react when governments act undemocratically – more specifically with a focus on violations and changes of the national constitution. Thus, the project is situated somewhere in between the spheres of political behavior and comparative politics. The project is not meant to be country-specific, but is strongly motivated by recent political developments in Poland and (especially) Viktor Orbán’s Hungary.


Besides doing my PhD, I am currently finishing my Master’s Degree in Political Science at Aarhus University. During prior semesters, I have worked as a TA in various BA methods courses. Moreover, I spent this year’s spring semester at The University of Texas at Austin, which - since I followed courses alongside other PhDs - served as the perfect prelude to my time as a PhD.
