I am a Researcher and Lecturer at Freie Universität Berlin, Associate Researcher at Sciences Po Paris (CEE & LIEPP), at Centre Marc Bloch (French-German Research Center for the Socieal Sciences) and Fellow at the WZB (Wissenschaftszentrum Berlin, Center for Civil Society Research).
I was awarded a PhD from Sciences Po Paris. While completing my PhD, I moved to Italy, where I was a Max Weber Fellow at the European University Institute (EUI) in Florence and I was an OxPo Fellow at the University of Oxford, Nuffield College. I was also chercheuse invitée at the Paris School of Economics (invited by Jean-François Laslier and Thomas Piketty).
I have an interdisciplinary background, holding degrees in Political Science, Economics and Empirical Social and Political Analysis.
My current research focuses on (failing) representation, including three research clusters:
(1) Failing representation - citizens' perspective
(2) Why are citizens satisfied with public policies (or not)? (with Emiliano Grossman)
(3) The conflict on human values in Europe.
My regional focus is Europe and, in particular, France and Germany.
