I am a Research Associate at the European University Institute´s Migration Policy Centre (MPC), where I work on the Observatory of Public Attitudes to Migration (OPAM) project. Before joining the EUI, I was a post-doctoral researcher at the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin. My research interests are at the intersection of comparative politics, political behavior and political psychology. More specifically, in my research I mostly analyze political behaviour, public opinion and individual attitudes (particularly attitudes to migration, populism, nationalism, xenophobia and Euroscepticism) with quantitative methods.
I received my PhD (Summa Cum Laude) from the Berlin Graduate School of Social Sciences at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin in 2016 with a dissertation entitled Where and Why are the Higher Educated More Inclined to Tolerate? Explaining the Educational Effect on Tolerance. I hold additional degrees from Central European University (Hungary) and Charles University (Czech Republic).
