About

Hi, welcome to my site. I am a senior researcher and SNSF Ambizione fellow at the European Politics Group, ETH Zurich.

My research interests lie in the areas of the political economy of European integration and comparative political behavior in the European Union. On the one hand, I am interested in how inequalities shape people’s political orientations and behaviors towards integration. On the other hand, I am interested in how public policy – such as European Structural and Investment Funding – is able to mitigate inequalities. In August 2019, I received funding from the Swiss National Science Foundation for a four year project on regional inequality and the political geography of EU support.

I am teaching methods, as well as comparative and EU politics in ETH Zurich’s Master of Comparative and International Studies. I am also the co-chair of the European Politics working group of the Swiss Political Science Association.
