About me

I am a Lecturer and Chancellor's Fellow in Political Science in the School of Government & Public Policy at the University of Strathclyde, Glasgow. Before moving to Scotland, I was a Max Weber Fellow at the European University Institute in Florence and a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Copenhagen on the project GovLis. I received my DPhil from the University of Oxford (Nuffield College) in 2015. I also hold an MSc in Comparative Politics (Democracy) from the London School of Economics and Political Science and a BA in Integrated Social Sciences from Jacobs University Bremen. You can find my CV here.

My research interests are at the intersection between comparative politics and political behaviour. I predominantly use quantitative methods and study the European context. My work centres around three main themes: 

1) The effects of policy representation on citizens' political support and engagement

2) Policy representation in Europe

3) The role of disability in political behaviour and representation

Teaching and supervision

At Strathclyde, I am teaching the Quantitative Methods II course in the Master's programme. Previously I have taught and assisted in teaching quantitative research methods, political sociology, and comparative politics at the University of Oxford, the European University Institute, and the Essex Summer School in Social Science and Data Analysis.

I am interested in supervising PhD projects related to any of my areas of research. Please contact me if you are interested in applying to do a PhD with me at the University of Strathclyde.
