I am currently a Postdoctoral Researcher with the Institutions and Political Economy Research Group at the University of Barcelona. In September 2019, I will join the Cologne Center for Comparative Politics as an Assistant Professor in Empirical Democratic Theory.
I study electoral politics, voting behaviour, party system dynamics and representation in democracies. My dissertation uses formal and statistical methods to explain why and when parties use particular salience strategies in their campaigns. Other projects explore various topics in democratic theory, political behaviour and historical political economy. My research has been published in Political Science Research and Methods.
I received my PhD in Political Science from the University of Rochester. Prior to my doctoral studies, I received a BA (Hons.) in History from the University of Oxford, and an MPhil in Political Thought & Intellectual History from the University of Cambridge.
