I’m Assistant Professor (tenure-track) at the Department of Political and Social Sciences at the University of Bologna. Before joining the University of Bologna I was Assistant Professor at the Department of Government (University of Vienna).
I completed my Ph.D. dissertation at the Department of Political Science at Trinity College Dublin, Ireland in November 2013 under the supervision of Professors Michael Marsh and Kenneth Benoit.
My Ph.D. dissertation focused on electoral behaviour under mixed-member electoral systems and it has been awarded the ECPR Jean Blondel PhD prize for the best thesis in Politics in 2014.
My main research interests include comparative electoral behaviour, coalition governments, representation and research methodologies.
