About me

I joined the LSE in October 2020 as part of the GV101 team teaching the ‘Introduction to Politics’ module. My research is in political psychology:  I am interested in how citizens process factual information that challenges political opinions. Ultimately, I try to understand divides over matters of fact in order to find ways to bridge them. My research relies on experimental methods (lab and survey experiments). I hold a BA and an MA from the University of Konstanz and a PhD from the University of Essex.
