Mirjam Dageförde is a Researcher and Lecturer at Freie Universität Berlin, Fellow at the WZB (Berlin Center for Social Science) and Associate Researcher at Sciences Po Paris (CEE LIEPP) and the Centre Marc Bloch. Currently, she is also chercheuse invitée at the Paris School of Economics.

She holds a PhD from Sciences Po and was previously Max Weber Fellow at the European University Institute and OxPo Fellow at the University of Oxford, Nuffield College. She taught in France, Germany and UK, among others at Sciences Po in the Euro-American program, a dual degree program with Columbia University, Berkeley and other Northern American Universities.

She has an interdisciplinary background, holding degrees in Political Science, Economics and Empirical Social and Political Analysis. Her research interests span the fields of citizens and politics, comparative politics, inequality, social psychology, political behavior and methods. 

In her current research, she explores how citizens evaluate representation and how the institutional context impacts on their judgments. She identifies causes and consequences of failing representation and how representation changes in times of crisis. 

The collaborative project "Why are citizens satisfied with public policies (or not)?" that she conducts with Emiliano Grossman (Sciences Po) investigates trends and determinants of policy appreciation in France.
