I am a Postdoctoral Researcher with the Institutions and Political Economy Research Group at the University of Barcelona. Previously, I have been a Visiting Researcher at Princeton University and a Visiting Fellow at the Nottingham Interdisciplinary Centre for Economic and Political Research.
I study electoral politics, voting behaviour, party system dynamics and representation in both emerging and established 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, comparative political behaviour and historical political economy.
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.
