Personal Statement

I am a Senior Lecturer (Associate Professor) in the Department of Politics at the University of Liverpool. I joined the Department as a Lecturer in Politics in September 2019. Before moving to Liverpool, I was a Juan de la Cierva-formación Postdoctoral Researcher at the Department of Political Science and Public Law at the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona and part of the DEC research group. Previously, I was a researcher in the ERC-funded ResponsiveGov Project at the School of History, Politics and International Relations at the University of Leicester, where I obtained my PhD with a dissertation investigating the effects of electoral incentives on government responsiveness to public opinion. I hold an MA (Florence) and a BA (Cagliari) in Political Science. I am a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy. I was nominated for the ECPR Rising Star Award twice in 2020 and 2021.
