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).

New Master in Institutions and Political Economy

The Master in Institutions and Political Economy (MIPE) is a research-oriented program at the intersection of Political Science and Economics, with a historical perspective of institutional and political change. It is a joint initiative of the Political Science, Economics and Economic History Departments at the University of Barcelona.



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.

ICREA Academia

I have been awarded with an ICREA Academia grant for the 2020-25 period. The ICREA Academia is a grant shceme promoted by the Catalan Institution for Research and Advanced Studies to promote research intensification among university professors who already hold permanent positions in the Catalan research system.
