Lion Behrens is a research
associate at the Collaborative Research Center 884 "The Political Economy
and a PhD student at the Center for Doctoral Studies in Social and Behavioral Sciences. He holds a Master of Science in Methodology and Statistics from the University of Utrecht and a Bachelor's degree in Political Science from the University of Bremen. As part of his studies, he absolved research stays at institutions such as the
Latin American Social Science Institute (FLACSO) in Quito, Ecuador and the Lebniz Institute for the Social Sciences
(GESIS) in Mannheim.
His methodological work centers around Bayesian statistics. Currently, he implements a Bayesian method that allows for synthesizing quantitative evidence even when stemming from heterogeneous statistical models as commonly applied in the social and political sciences. His first substantive publication focuses on young party members and their different incentives for partisan engagement over three latent categories.
