ABOUT ME

I am Postdoctoral Scholar at Stanford Impact Labs and Department of Political Science, Stanford University. I obtained my Ph.D. from Pompeu Fabra University (Barcelona) in July 2022. As a graduate student, I was visiting researcher at the European University Institute, Nuffield College at the University of Oxford, and the Haas School of Business at UC Berkeley.

My research interest lies at the intersections of comparative politics, elites’ political behavior and gender. Specifically, I explore gender inequalities in the political sphere by analyzing how political leaders’ attitudes and personal characteristics define women’s selection into politics and governments. Combining observational and experimental data, my dissertation demonstrates that governments’ negotiation dynamics could help explain a significant share of the gender gap in top political positions.

Part of this work has been published in The Journal of Politics and the European Journal of Political Research.
