I am a Lecturer in Politics at the University of York. I hold a D.Phil. in Politics from the University of Oxford (Nuffield College), and I am a Doctor Member of the Juan March Institute, where I previously completed a two-year M.A in Social Sciences. My doctoral work was also conducted at Princeton University, where I was a visiting researcher (2009-2010). My dissertation, The Politics of Distribution, was awarded with the PSA 2012 Arthur McDougall Fund Prize for the best British dissertation on elections, electoral systems or representation.
My research has been published (or is forthcoming) in International Organization, British Journal of Political Science, European Journal of Political Research, the European Journal of Political Economy, or Party Politics, among others.
My research interests lie at the intersection between comparative political economy, and electoral behaviour and combines the use of observational data, survey experiments, and quasi-experimental methods. I am now involved in several projects on the political consequences of the economic crisis and globalization, and on party system nationalisation and electoral geography.
