My research deals with agenda-setting, mainly with the agenda-setting power of mass media coverage. Theoretically, I'm interested in information-processing by political actors. Methodologically, my approach is mainly comparative drawing on data from different countries. I am a collaborator of the Comparative Agendas Project.
