Projects per year
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.
My main research interests relate to:
- Comparative Government
- Parties and Party Systems
- Political Representation
- 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.
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
