Biography: 

I am an Assistant Professor in Research Methods at Maastricht University but in the academic year of 2014-2015 I am based as a Fellow at the Hansewissenschaftskolleg Institute for Advanced Studies in Delmenhorst, Germany. I am also a regular visiting scholar at the University of Edinburgh. My research and teaching interests span the topics of federalism, territorial politics, methodology, regional government, regional elections, multilevel governance, and regionalist parties. My work can be characterized by its comparative and quantitative nature with a strong focus on the collection of data and the development of new measurements which are subsequently used to advance theory.
