In his research, Rino Heim focuses on analyzing voting behavior in elections and referendums. He seeks to understand how voters change their behavior through different policies or changes in institutional settings. Most recently, in the context of elections, he analyzes discrimination and how Voting Advice Applications can adjust for the under-representation of female politicians. Rino Heim also has a strong interest in applied econometrics, and his research relies on the latest methods in that field.
