Hi, welcome to my site. I am a postdoctoral researcher at the European Politics Group, ETH Zurich.
My research focuses on the intersection of inequality, redistribution, and political behavior in the European Union. On the one hand, I am interested in how inequalities shape people’s political orientations and behaviors, with the aim to understand phenomena such as political alienation and radical party support. On the other hand, I am interested in how public policy – such as European Structural and Investment Funding – is able to mitigate inequalities. Recently, I have started a broader research project on the role of regional inequalities and the political geography of Euroscepticism. Here, I ask how the regional context shapes political preferences and behaviors in Europe’s multi-level political system.
I am teaching methods and EU politics in ETH Zurich’s Master of Comparative and International Studies. I am also the co-chair for the European Politics working group of the Swiss Political Science Association.
