I am a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Hertie School in Berlin, Germany. With Prof. Ruth Ditlmann, we study intergroup relations and commemorating the past atrocities. More specifically, we examine how commemorating the past atrocities affects political behavior and attitudes toward minority groups.
My research is at the intersection of intergroup relations, forced migration, and political violence and employs quantitative and experimental methods. My PhD thesis examines the causes of forced migration with a focus on rebel group dynamics. My recent research analyzes how intergroup relations can be improved and how the past can be instrumentalized for this purpose. My research is published or accepted for publication in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, International Studies Quarterly, Journal of Conflict Resolution, Journal of Peace Research, Political Science Research and Methods, and other outlets.
