Welcome to my homepage.
I am a Lecturer at the University of Reading. Before that I was a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Salzburg and I completed my PhD at ETH Zurich. My research focuses on challenges to (liberal) democracy. Specifically, I am interested in understanding empirically how populism and climate change exert pressure on liberal democratic governance.
I am happy to co-organise and co-host the Populism Seminar with Annika Werner (Australian National University), Andrej Zaslove (Radboud University Nijmegen), and Maurits Meijers (Radboud University Nijmegen). Every second and last Monday of the month, we meet on Zoom to exchange the latest populism research and to facilitate cooperation among scholars across countries.
