About

I am a PhD candidate in political science at the DYNAMICS graduate school, which is jointly organised by Humboldt University Berlin and the Hertie school. In 2022, I was a visiting scholar at UCSD.

From January 2023, I will be a Postdoctoral Associate at Yale.

The core of my research studies when and how voters and political elites act on climate. My dissertation, which is supervised by Heike Klüver, looks at how climate change and its politicisation influence the behaviour of voters and of political elites.

I study these questions in established democracies, applying causal inference methods on observational and geospatial data. Prior to starting 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.

On this website, you can find more information on my research, my teaching experience, on datasets I collected, and you can download my CV.
