I am a political scientist interested in comparative politics, European politics, and political psychology. I received my PhD in political science from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in May 2014. Currently, I am a Lecturer at the University of Exeter in the UK. Previously, I was a Max Weber Postdoctoral Fellow at the European University Institute in Florence.

My work is published in the European Journal of Political ResearchPolitical PsychologyEuropean Union Politics, the‚Äč Journal of Common Market Studies, and the Journal of European Public Policy. I am working on two lines of research. On the one hand, I examine how citizens form attitudes towards complex political issues such as European integration and international redistribution. On the other hand, I am interested in 'post factual politics': I analyze misperceptions that citizens hold about politics, the processes that generate them, and the conditions under which they can be corrected.
