I am an Assistant Professor in European Political Economy at the University of Amsterdam (UvA). Previously, I was a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Political Behavior at Humboldt University of Berlin as part of the COVIDEU project.
I received my PhD in Political Economy at King's College London. I work on issues related to political behavior and political economy with a special focus on political elites, policymaking and immigration. You can read my CV here.
