Welcome! I am a Postdoctoral Associate at the MacMillan Center, Yale University. Before that, I received my PhD in political science at the DYNAMICS graduate school, jointly organised by Humboldt University Berlin and the Hertie school and was a visiting scholar at UCSD.
I study the comparative politics of climate change and of the environment, focusing on political behaviour and political elites in established democracies. The core of my research seeks to answer two questions: 1. When and why do voters change their opinions and behaviours regarding climate change? and 2. How do political incentives influence political elites’ behaviour on climate change? I study these questions applying causal inference methods on observational and geospatial data. In addition to these questions, I am also interested in gender and representation. Prior to my PhD, I obtained a BA (University of Coimbra) and an MSc (London School of Economics) in (social) psychology that inform how I think about political phenomena.
