I am a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Department of Politics at the University of Exeter, where I work on the OPTED (Observatory for Political Texts in European Democracies) and PRECEDE (Populism’s Roots: Economic and Cultural Explanations in Democracies of Europe) projects.
I obtained my PhD in Political Science from the King’s College London, and hold a BA in Political Science and master’s degrees in Management of Public Administrations and European Affairs.
I study public opinion - particularly public support for EU integration - and the responsiveness of non-majoritarian institutions and the of the EU policy-making process. I am particularly interested in methodologies like quantitative text analysis, machine learning algorithms and item response approaches.
