My research interests lie at the intersection between comparative political economy, and electoral behaviour and combines the use of observational data, survey experiments, and quasi-experimental methods. I am the PI of the ESRC project “Democratic Dissatisfaction in Southern Europe” and am involved in other projects on the political consequences of the economic crisis, globalization, distributive politics and political geography. I welcome PhD supervisions on any of these topics.
