ABOUT ME

I am a postdoctoral fellow at the Inclusive Democracy and Development (ID2) Lab at Stanford Impact Labs (SIL). I obtained my Ph.D. from Pompeu Fabra University (Barcelona) in July 2022. During my Ph.D., I have been a visiting researcher at the European University Institute, at Nuffield College, the University of Oxford, and the Haas School of Business at UC Berkeley.

I am interested in the political behavior of citizens and elites, focusing on their selection into politics and governments. My dissertation explains the extent to which government formation processes are defined by political leaders' attitudes and personal characteristics, focusing on gender.
