Political Science

Welcome to my website!

I am a Postdoctoral Researcher at the ERC Starting Grant project "DEMOTRADEOFF" at the Autonomous University of Barcelona (UAB), which analyzes democratic trade-offs and how these might fuel political discontent. I am also fellow at the Democracy, Elections, and Citizenship (DEC) research group.  

I completed a PhD in Political Science at the University of Barcelona in 2022. As a graduate student I have been visiting researcher at the Quality of Government Institute, University of Gothenburg (Fall 2021).

My main research interests include political behavior, political attitudes, accountability, and party systems, with a particular focus on causal identification and research methods. Parts of my dissertation, entitled "How Changing Party Systems Shape the Functioning of Democracy", have been published in Party Politics and Local Government Studies.
