I am currently a Lecturer (Assistant Professor) in Quantitative Politics at the University of Kent, and a Visiting Fellow in European Politics at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE). I specialise on quantitative research methods, European political behaviour and public opinion, gendered political behaviour, comparative political institutions and decision-making, and the politics of Brexit.
Previously, I was an LSE Fellow at the European Institute of the London School of Economics and a lecturer in comparative politics in the Department of Political and Cultural Studies in Swansea University. I hold a PhD in Political Science (comparative politics, EU politics and political behaviour) and an MPhil in European Studies from Trinity College Dublin, as well as a BA in Foreign Languages (linguistics and journalism) from Università degli Studi di Cagliari.
My research interests include political representation, democratic deficits, public opinion, voting behaviour, gendered political behaviour, legislative behaviour and European Union politics. In my research I adopt quantitative methods, quantitative text-analysis, as well as experimental survey analysis.
