Welcome to my website!
I was previously an Assistant Lecturer (“Contratto integrativo di insegnamento” according to article 23, Law 240/2010) at LUISS Guido Carli University’s Department of Political Science in Rome, Italy.
I got a PhD in Political Science from LUISS University (with excellence). My doctoral dissertation – supervised by Professor Leonardo Morlino – explored the non-economic and contextual determinants of electoral accountability in eleven Central and Eastern European EU member States.
I was a Visiting Fellow at the Department of Government and IR of the University of Sydney to work with the Electoral Integrity Project directed by Prof. Pippa Norris (Harvard and Sydney Universities). I was also Visiting Researcher at GESIS European Data Laboratory for Comparative Social Research (EUROLAB) in Cologne, Germany. My research interests include the quality of democracy, elections, voting behaviour, policy responsiveness and political representation.
During the Postdoc at UiB I plans to further extend my research interests, focusing also on the individual- and country-level determinants of responsiveness in comparative perspective.
On this website you’ll find information about recent my activities, research, interests, and blog posts on Italian politics and beyond.
