Sebastian Juhl is a PhD student at the CDSS and holds a Bachelor's Degree in Social Sciences from the Justus-Liebig-University Giessen as well as a Master's Degree in Political Science with a focus on quantitative methods from the University of Mannheim. In the course of his studies, he gained teaching experience in statistics tutorials and worked as a research assistant at different Chairs, including the Chair of Political Economy in Mannheim.Besides his interest in quantitative methods and formal models, Sebastian's research focuses on the theory-driven empirical examination of patterns of party competition and the process by which citizens' preferences are translated into policy outputs in representative democracies. He aims to analyze how parties and legislators strategically respond to dynamic societal processes within the constituency and how these processes alter the course of legislative decision-making as well as parties' strategic position-taking. In line with this, his Master's thesis examined dynamics in party positions and parties' spatial dependencies within the German multiparty system by using roll-call votes.
