I’m a postdoctoral researcher at the European University Institute, where I obtained my Ph.D. in political science in November 2016. Currently, I’m a visiting researcher at Copenhagen University, and previously I spent periods as a visiting researcher at New York University and University of Edinburgh.
My research focuses on political behaviour, public opinion and political psychology. I employ a number of quantitative methods of analysis, including experimental methods, surveys, content analysis, and semi-automated techniques of text analysis.
Before joining the EUI, I gained a master’s degree in media policy at the London School of Economics, in addition to a bachelor and a master’s degree in communication studies at the University of Bologna.
I worked as a communication assistant for the Communication Directorate-General of the European Commission, as a journalist for daily newspapers, and as a campaign manager for two electoral campaigns.
