David Hilpert completed his bachelor and master’s degrees in Political Science at the University of Mannheim, with stays abroad at Trinity College Dublin, Ireland, and the Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, USA.
His research focuses on theories of institutional emergence, effects and change, particularly in a European Union setting. Currently, he is particularly interested in the decision making of the European Court of Justice, and how it depends on its political environment. He is also extremely interested in quantitative methods, and philosophy of science more generally.
