I am currently a Fellow in EU Politics at the London School of Economics (LSE), where I teach classes in European Union institutions and decision-making, with a focus on Euroscepticism and the comparative impact of the EU on domestic policies, polities and public opinion. Previously, I was 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, public opinion, democratic deficits, voting behaviour, legislative behaviour and European Union politics. In my research I adopt quantitative text-analysis, quantitative data analysis, as well as experimental and survey analysis.
