About me

My main research interests are comparative politics and political communication, with a focus on quantitative methods and computational social science approaches. I received my PhD in Politics from the University of Strathclyde in 2021. My current research examines political campaigning on Twitter during European Parliament elections, as well as political representation in UK public broadcasting. My other published work based on my PhD research explores the relationship between electoral rules such as compulsory voting and voter registration, and social inequalities across voting, non-electoral participation, and political attitudes.
