I am currently an Assistant Professor (Lecturer) in Comparative Politics at the University of Surrey.

My main research fields are comparative political behaviour and public opinion, particularly in Western Europe but also in Latin America. I am the principal investigator of the Global Public Opinions Project and a team leader for Team Populism.

My specific interests include public opinion, responsiveness, congruence, executive approval and macro-politics. I also study populism and political extremism.
