I am a researcher at the department of Political Science and International Relations at Geneva University. Together with Frédéric Varone I am currently working on investigating how Swiss politicians form their perceptions about public opinion. We work cosely with other colleagues in Europe and Canada who are conducting similar studies in their respective countries.
My research interests include experimental approaches with a focus on multivariate/factorial (i.e. factorial survey or choice experiments) and I study the relationship of political elites (including political journalists) with each other and/or the public, mainly from a comparative perspective.
I hold a PhD from the Departments of Political Science of Leiden University and the University of Antwerp, a research MA in Communication Science from the University of Amsterdam (with honors) and a bilingual BA from the University of Fribourg (Switzerland). Before my appointment in Geneva, I worked as a lecturer at the University of Amsterdam.
