Welcome

I'm a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Political Behaviour at Humboldt University of Berlin within the VolkswagenStiftung project COVIDEU.

I received my PhD in Political Economy at King's College London. I work on issues related to political behaviour with a special focus on political elites, immigration and gender. I do survey experiments and use natural experiments for causal inference. You can read my CV here.
