Danielle Martin is a Post-Doctoral Researcher at the Collaborative Research Center SFB 884 at the University of Mannheim. She completed her Ph.D. in Political Science at the University of Michigan. Prior to her graduate program, she studied statistics, and worked as a statistician on a project on electoral fraud detection in Switzerland.  Her dissertation examines how risk attitudes affect vote choice of both citizens and representatives, and discusses the implications for democratic representation. After her Ph.D., she worked as a postdoctoral researcher at the European Institute at the London School of Economics and Political Science, and also as a researcher at the University of Exeter. Her major research areas are political behavior, political parties, political communication, the effect of institutions on representation, decision processes, and online behavior.
