Her research and teaching areas include party research (party competition, electoral pledges, candidate selection, far right parties), political representation with a focus on the descriptive and substantive representation of minorities, and quantitative methods. She is also in charge of the German-French joint-degree study program with Sciences Po Bordeaux and held a teaching position at Sciences Po (Nancy Campus) in the fall semester of 2018. Currently, she is also providing academic support for the project "BePart - Teilhabe beginnt vor Ort!"
