Welcome to my website!
My name is Maximilian Filsinger. I am a Postdoctoral Researcher at the University of Bern. I hold a Ph.D. from the University of Bern. My main research interests lie at the intersection of political sociology, political psychology, and comparative politics. I am particularly interested in (affective) polarization, political attitudes such democratic regime preferences, populist attitudes and political trust as well as social capital theory.
I am currently part of the Multidisciplinary Center for Infectious Diseases (MCID) funded project „Divided pandemic society and Public Health. Polarization in the Covid-19 pandemic response in Switzerland“. On this website, you will find further information on my research and teaching. Thank you for your interest and please feel free to contact me.
