He frequently analyzes the micro-level foundations of European Politics by investigating public opinion dynamics across EU states. Recently, he also engages with the Political Geography of European Politics. Since 2019, Dominik is principle investigator of the project “Regional Inequality and the Political Geography of Euroscepticism”, funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation. He is also currently involved in a project on the urban-rural divide in Europe, funded by the Center for Comparative and International Studies, Zürich.
