I am a researcher at the Department of Political Science and International Relations at Geneva University. With Prof. Frédéric Varone I investigate how Swiss politicians form their perceptions about public opinion and related questions.
My main research interests lie in studying the relationship of political elites (including political journalists) with each other and/or the public, mainly from a comparative perspective. I mostly apply quantitative methods with a primary focus on experimental approaches (i.e. conjoint designs) and survey data (elite and public).
I was nominated as a Fulbright Visiting Scholar at Stanford University for the academic year 2019-20. 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’s Communication Science department (ranked 1st in the World since 2018).
