David Weisstanner


I am an assistant professor at the Department of Political Science at Aarhus University. Previously, I was a postdoc at University of Oxford between 2018 and 2021, where I remain an associate member at Nuffield College and the Institute for New Economic Thinking. I obtained my PhD at the University of Bern in 2018.

My research focuses on the relationship between economic and political outcomes in advanced democracies. I am studying the impact of income inequality on policy preferences and voting, and how this impact has changed over the past few decades. I am also interested in how the politics of inequality and redistribution are shaped by characteristics such as income, class, or subjective social status, as well as ideology.
