My research approach combines qualitative (expert and elite interviews; process tracing; qualitative text analysis; discourse analysis; and QCA) and quantitative (machine learning; network analysis; data mining; and quantitative text analysis) methods.

Currently, I am developing a large dataset of parliamentary speeches in EU's (semi-)periphery since the 1950s. Furthermore, I have collected central bank documents as well as substantial amounts of data on financial systems in Europe, Asia, and Latin America.

My country expertise extends from Europe (Poland, Portugal) to Asia (Japan, South Korea) and Latin America (Argentina, Brazil, Chile). Overall I conducted more than 60 interviews with politicians (including ministers and state secretaries), policymakers (including central bank governors), and experts.
