About

foto copenhagen 3picI’m an Assistant Professor (postdoc) at the Department of Government at University of Vienna. My research focuses on political behaviour, public opinion, political psychology, political parties and direct democracy. I employ quantitative methods of analysis, including experimental methods, surveys, content analysis, and semi-automated techniques of text analysis.

In November 2016 I obtained a Ph.D. in political science from the European University Institute, and I have been a visiting researcher at New York University, Copenhagen University, and University of Edinburgh.

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.

Before starting my academic career, 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 in Italy.
