I currently work as a research associate for DiCED (Digital Campaigning and Electoral Democracy). This is a major new comparative project for the study of the drivers and effects of digital campaigning in 5 countries and 7 national elections during the period 2020-2023.

I specialise in the study of political communication and political argumentation, looking at perceptions of politician behaviour, the language used in campaigns and public opinion. She is also interested in the combined application of quantitative, qualitative and automated research methods to datasets of all sizes.
