Welcome to my academic website.

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. This project is part of a larger comparative POLPOP project coordinated by members of the M2P research group at the University of Antwerp.

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.
