- Benedetta Giocoli
I am a first-year MPhil student in Politics (Comparative Government) researching the socialisation of party identity. More broadly, I am interested in studying political behaviour, attitude and opinion formation, and political trust using causal inference and machine learning methods.
Before joining DPIR, I graduated from University College London with First Class Honours (Dean's List) in the BSc Philosophy, Politics and Economics with Social Data Science. In my undergraduate dissertation, I used quasi-experimental methods to examine the impact of radical right representation in legislatures on political system support.
I currently work as a Research Assistant at the UCL Department of Political Science on projects on identity politics, immigration attitudes, and (social, political, institutional) trust.
My studies at Oxford are fully funded by a DPIR Studentship.
