Florian is an Assistant Professor in Political Behaviour in the Department of Government. He studies political campaigns using randomized field experiments that he conducts with partner organisations, such as political parties and other campaign organisations. His research aim is to identify the causal effects of formal and informal interactions between citizens, politicians and campaign workers on electoral mobilization, opinion change and political activism. He is particularly interested in social mobilisation and persuasion between co-partisans and supporters of opposing parties or causes. Throughout his research, he applies experimental and quasi-experimental methods for causal inference.
