Thanks to the great collaboration with Constantin Ruhe, the DSF project has been brought to a successful conclusion. We conducted large-scale reimbursed surveys to better understand individual-level sentiments in episodes of political violence. Moreover, several accepted publications have appeared in print this year (see Publications). To build up some solid teaching experience, I’m currently on a temporary full professorship (Vertretungsprofessur) for International Politics at the Humboldt University in Berlin. Humboldt University is a great place to be and I’m very excited for this opportunity.
