Strathclyde Chancellor's Fellow

Politics

Personal statement

I joined the School of Government and Public Policy in 2017 as a Chancellor's Fellow. Before moving to Glasgow, I was a Max Weber Fellow at the European University Institute in Florence and a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Copenhagen. I hold a DPhil from the University of Oxford, an MSc from the LSE and a BA from Jacobs University Bremen. My research focuses on political representation, behaviour, and attitudes. I use quantitative methods to study how well public policy reflects the preferences and views of citizens, what explains differences in representation between different social groups and countries, and how it affects individuals' attitudes towards their political system. You can find further information about my research on http://mwpweb.eu/StefanieReher/.
