ABOUT ME

I am PhD candidate in Political and Social Sciences department at the Universitat Pompeu Fabra, under the supervision of the Dr. Aina Gallego. Furthermore, I am a pre-doctoral fellow from the Spanish Ministry of Economy, Industry and Competitiviness (FPI), linked to the project LEADERS at the Barcelona Institute of International Studies (IBEI). During my PhD I have been a visiting researcher at the European University Institute and at Nuffield College, University of Oxford. Currently I am visiting researcher at the Haas School of Business at UC Berkeley.

I am graduated in Political Science and Public Administration, and Master in Research in Political Science from Universitat Pompeu Fabra, in Barcelona. My specialization is in the study of political behaviour of citizens and political leaders, electoral systems and multilevel governance through quantitative research methods. My PhD thesis "The Effects of Leaders on Governments Formation" focuses on the mechanisms of formation of governments and to what extent these are defined by the attitudes and individual characteristics of the political leaders.
