I am currently an Assistant Professor (Lecturer) 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 collaborate on Team Populism.

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