I recently joined the Department of Government at the University of Vienna as a postdoctoral researcher. Before that, I completed my DPhil dissertation on enfranchisement with no corrections at the University of Oxford. There, my research was jointly funded by the Department of Politics and International Relations and Pembroke College. I have also been collaborating on a large project on migrant electoral rights at the Global Citizenship Observatory at the European University Institute.

Substantively, my work focuses on the causes and consequences of enfranchisement and other electoral reforms. Methodologically, I combine qualitative with quantitative and experimental methods.


My research interests include:

  • Comparative Politics and Government,

  • Political Parties,

  • Electoral Reforms,

  • Migration
