I am a graduate student of Political Science, pursuing a Double Degree Masters at Rutgers University and the University of Konstanz. I aim to pursue a subsequent PhD. My research interests surround the political representation of women, gender stereotypes and qualification perceptions of female candidates as well as the legislative behavior of female representatives.   As an exchange student at Bocconi University in Milan and visiting student at the University of Zurich, I have also focused on research surrounding Comparative Politics and European Integration in my past studies.   Prior to attending Rutgers, I received a B.A. in Political Science with a focus on Quantitative Methods and a minor in English Linguistics from the University of Mannheim. Throughout my undergraduate studies, I have worked as a student research assistant in the project “Intra-Party Politics and European Multiparty Government” as well as “Mediated Contestation in Comparative Perspective” at the Mannheim Centre for European Social Research.
