Professor of North American Politics
I received my PhD in political science from Goethe-Universität (Frankfurt am Main) in 2002 and taught there from 2002 until 2007. Since then, I have been first Guestprofessor at the Freie Universität Berlin and since 2012 Professor of North American Politics in the Department of Political Science at John-F.-Kennedy Institute for North American Studies. I published widely on social policy, the political system in the United States, health care reform in the US and nationalism and regional Integration in a transatlantic perspective.
My research interests so far can be divided into two main areas: comparative welfare state research and problems of nationationalism, multiculturalism and regional Integration.
