Personal profile

Personal Statement

I joined the School of Government and Public Policy as a Lecturer in September 2013. Previously I was a post-doctoral research fellow in an ESRC project analysing political representation in the European Union at University of Aberdeen. I received my MA and PhD in Political Science in 2009 from the Central European University, Budapest, Hungary. Before that, I was a Marie Curie fellow at the University of Bradford, and held research and visiting fellowships at the University of Birmingham and Northwestern University.

Research Interests

My main research interests relate to:

  • Comparative Government
  • Parties and Party Systems
  • Political Representation
  • Constitutionalism
  • European Union Politics
  • Quantitative Methods

I am currently engaged in projects about: 1) Comparative party factionalism in Europe using expert surveys. The project enquires into types of factionalism and links them with the external institutional and internal organisational settings in which parties operate; 2) The justifications for regulating political parties in constitutions by analysing constitutional amendments and making use of the database developed by the Party Law in Modern Europe project; 3) Misrepresentation in Europe, policy responses to corruption and the efficiency of EU post conditionality.

Teaching Interests

I currently coordinate and contribute to teaching in the following courses:


  • L2102 - Politics: Concepts
  • L2203 - Politics: Government and Governance
  • L2204 - Comparative Politics


  • L2914 - European Governance
