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. Methodologically, I have expertise of quantitative text-analysis, quantitative data analysis, as well as experimental and survey research.
