Marie-Therese Meye is a PhD student in Political Science (CDSS) at the Graduate School of Economics and Social Sciences of the University of Mannheim. Marie-Therese holds a bachelor’s degree in North American Studies from the Free University Berlin, Germany, and a master’s degree in International War Studies from both the University College Dublin, Ireland, and the University of Potsdam, Germany. During her bachelor’s degree, she also visited the University of Maryland, College Park, United States.
In her master’s thesis, she conducted a quantitative analysis of all conflict-related deaths during the Northern Ireland conflict from 1969–1999 to understand how different types of violence during the Troubles interacted with each other across time and space and how spatial and temporal patterns of conflict-related deaths can be characterized. As part of the thesis, a dataset was created containing information on 3,524 fatalities.
Marie-Therese previously worked as a research assistant in the project “The Continuation of Conflict-related Violence in Postwar Cities” with Dr. Emma Elfversson and Dr. Ivan Gusic at the Department of Peace and Conflict Research at Uppsala University, Sweden. Her research interests include ethnic conflict, militant fragmentation, social movement studies, mass violence & genocide studies, and temporal and spatial dynamics of violence.
