Welcome to my website.

I am a Post-doctoral researcher at the Department of Political Science of the University of Zurich and I am part of the ERC project WELFAREPRIORITIES in which we study political divides among voters and elites and potentials for solidaristic social policy reforms.

In my work I focus on welfare politics, public opinion, and party competition. Please find more detail about my work here.
