Violeta Haas is a PhD candidate at the Research Training Group "The Dynamics of Demography, Democratic Processes and Public Policy" (DYNAMICS), jointly organised by the Hertie School and the Department of Social Sciences at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin. 


She earned her bachelor´s and master´s degrees in Social Sciences at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin. During her studies, she worked as a research, teaching and editorial assistant at the Chair of Comparative Political Behavior, the Chair of Empirical Social Research, the German Institute for Economic Research (DIW), the Cluster of Excellence "Contestations of the Liberal Script" (SCRIPTS) and the Journal of Politics (JOP).  


Violeta´s research interests lie at the intersection of political behavior, far-right parties, populism, political violence, prejudice, intergroup conflict and social norms. Her methodological interests include quantitative approaches to the analysis of text corpora, strategies for causal identification and methods within the field of computational social science. In her dissertation she plans to study the contextual drivers of politically and bias motivated crime.
