Patrick A. Mello is Visiting Scholar at the Willy Brandt School of Public Policy at the University of Erfurt, where he previously served as Interim Franz Haniel Professor for Public Policy. He received his PhD in Political Science in 2012 from Humboldt University Berlin. Dr. Mello has worked as Post-Doctoral Researcher at the Technical University of Dresden and as Tenured Associate at the Technical University of Munich, where he is pursuing his Habilitation at the TUM School of Governance.

His substantive research focuses on foreign policy analysis and international security with an emphasis on the domestic sources of foreign policy and democratic conflict behavior. He also works on comparative and qualitative research methods, especially fuzzy-set QCA on which he has taught courses at the ECPR Summer School in Methods and Techniques and the Swiss Social Science Methods Summer School. He is the author of Democratic Participation in Armed Conflict (Palgrave Macmillan), which received the dissertation award from the German Political Science Association (DVPW) in 2015. His work has appeared, among others, in the British Journal of Politics and International Relations, Contemporary Security Policy, European Journal of International Relations, Journal of International Relations and Development, Security and Peace, and West European Politics.

Dr. Mello is an Editorial Board member of Foreign Policy Analysis (Oxford University Press) and Contemporary Security Policy (Taylor & Francis). He is also an Advisory Board member of the scientific network of QCA experts “Comparative Methods for Systematic Cross-Case Analysis” (compasss.org), and Co-Speaker of the Foreign and Security Policy Group of the German Political Science Association (DVPW). During the 2017-2018 term he was a member of the Executive Committee of the Foreign Policy Section of the International Studies Association (ISA).

Recently, he has co-edited a Special Issue on “Parliaments in Security Policy” (with Dirk Peters) for the British Journal of Politics and International Relations. The contributions originate from a workshop funded by the German Foundation for Peace Research (Deutsche Stiftung Friedensforschung) and supported by the Peace Research Institute Frankfurt and the Bavarian School of Public Policy. He has further co-edited a Special Forum on “The Politics of Multinational Military Operations” (with Stephen M. Saideman) for Contemporary Security Policy.

Dr. Mello is currently involved in the DFG research project “International Bureaucracies as ‘Runaway Agents’? How Organizational Structure Affects Agency Slack” (Principal Investigator Eugénia da Conceição-Heldt) funded by the German Research Foundation (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft), 2018-2021.
