Personal profile

Research interests

My research interests revolve around two major research strands: public opinion and local participation. I have conducted research on political interest, internal efficacy, the duty to vote, social norms, populist attitudes, the personality of politicians and voters, and conspiratorial beliefs. 

Currently, my research interests include the links between emotions and political attitudes (e.g. populism, affective polarization, tolerance, political interest), the political socialization process and any political attitude that makes an individual more prone to participate in politics.
