Political Science, University of Barcelona


I am Associate Professor (Professor Agregat) at the Department of Political Science of the University of Barcelona, and Fellow at the Institutions and Political Economy Research Group. I hold an ICREA Academia Award. Previously, I was  Ramón y Cajal research fellow (2014-19), postdoctoral researcher (Juan de la Cierva) at the Democracy, Elections and Citizenship Research Group (UAB, 2010-14). I hold a PhD from  Pompeu Fabra University (2009). I have also been visiting researcher at the University of Gothenburg (2012) and Yale University (2007-08).


Research Interests

My research interests are related to political behavior and comparative politics. I conduct experimental research on political preferences, and quantitative observational research on political behavior and historical political economy (HPE).



My teaching is mostly related to political methodology and political behavior. I teach an undergraduate class on political science methods, and a masters class on electoral analysis. I also often teach quantiative methods classes.

BGB Workshop

I co-organize the  Barcelona-Gothenburg-Bergen Workshop on Experimental Political Science. The 6th edition was scheduled to take place in Bergen in May 2020 but was cancelled due to the COVID-19 outbreak.

ICREA Academia

I have recently been awarded with an ICREA Academia grant for research intensification for the 2020-25 period.
