My research is situated within Political Sociology, Political Psychology, and Comparative Politics. The comparative perspective is addressed by my interest in cross-national and sub-national analysis, mainly of European countries. My research's closeness to political psychology is given by my strong reliance on social psychological theories, such as social identity theory or group-threat theories, as well as my general interest in how individuals' personalities form their actions and attitudes. And last, my research falls into the area of political sociology as I, first, want to explain individual attitudes and behaviour and, second, how institutions, such as the welfare state and institutional or social norms, influence these attitudes and actions. Above all, my research is led by a strong focus on quantitative methods and survey research. 

Primary fields of research
