Bio: 

Philipp Harfst is a Junior Professor at the University of Greifswald. His research interests focus on political institutions, electoral research, and European political systems in comparative perspective. Currently, he concentrates on two major areas. At the macro level, he examines the field of political institutions and their change. In this context he focuses on the identification of changing patterns of democracy and the consequences of electoral systems and their changes on party systems, democratic quality and the quality of representation. Second, he is interested in the contextual determinants of vote choice at the micro level. In particular, he studies the effects of different electoral rules on electoral behaviour, analysing the impact of two-vote elections on strategic voting, the importance of candidates' national and regional ties for vote choice as well as the use of preferential votes in open list systems.
