I am a postdoctoral researcher and lecturer at the Amsterdam School of Communication Research (ASCoR) at the University of Amsterdam. Currently I work in the EUROPINIONS project in which we analyse causes and consequences of change in public opinion about Europe. Previously I worked at the Department of Political Science and International Relations at the University of Geneva, where I also obtained my PhD. Linked to my PhD project was a collaboration in the Swiss Electoral Studies Project (SELECTS). Before, I studied in the double-degree programme European Master in Government and hold two MAs from the University of Konstanz and the Universitat Pompeu Fabra. I also hold a BA in Political and Administrative Science from the University of Konstanz.
My research interests include political behaviour in both elections and referendums (e.g. cleavage voting, selective participation and contextual effects), political communication (e.g. media effects in electoral campaigns), EU attitudes and survey research (e.g. nonresponse bias, misreporting and mixed-mode surveys).
