Fabio Ellger is a PhD candidate at the Chair of Comparative Political Behavior at Humboldt University Berlin and a scientific assistant in the “COALITIONPOLICY” project (funded by the German Science Foundation). He also participates in the graduate training offered by the Berlin Graduate School of Social Sciences.

His main interest is political behavior in democracies. More specifically, he uses quantitative methods and experimental approaches to investigate the linkage of political parties and citizens, or address questions on participation and representation in democratic contexts.

Fabio completed his studies at the University of Potsdam, focusing on comparative politics and quantitative methods. He also spent a semester at Bogazici University, Istanbul, and at the Graduate School of Duke University, North Carolina.

In the course of his studies, he worked as a student assistant for the Manifesto Project at the Berlin Social Science Center (WZB) and at Potsdam’s Chair of Comparative Politics.
