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).
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).
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.
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.
