Arndt Leininger

I am a PhD candidate at the Hertie School of Governance, Berlin, and a research fellow at the Chairs for Public Policy and Empirical Political Science at the University of Mainz. My areas of research are in comparative politics and applied quantitative methods. I am interested in direct democracy, turnout, election forecasting, economic voting and electoral studies more broadly. I am also a founding member and current board member of CorrelAid, Germany's cool new student-led data science non-profit. I hold an MSc in Political Science and Political Economy from the London School of Economics and Political Science and a bachelor's degree in political science from Free University Berlin. From 2012 to 2013 I worked as parliamentary aide in the German Bundestag. I tweet about political science, citizen participation, data analysis and football using the handle @a_leininger. #DirekteDemokratie #rstats #echteliebe
