Sebastian Sternberg is a PhD Candidate at the CDSS at the University of Mannheim. He holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Political Science and Public Law from the University of Mannheim as well as a Master’s Double Degree in Public Administration and European Governance from the University of Konstanz and the Institute d’études politiques Grenoble. Sebastian gained a broad experience in judicial politics during his work as a research assistant at the MZES (Prof. Dr. Thomas Gschwend) and the Chair of Political Methodology (Prof. Susumu Shikano/ PD Dr. Ulrich Sieberer). In his Master’s thesis, Sebastian developed an integrated model of judicial choice for the German Federal Constitutional Court and tested it quantitatively using micro- level data on separate opinions. Thus, his research focus is clearly at everything that has to do with constitutional courts and judges.
