Welcome to my website! I’m a political scientist specializing in political behavior, public opinion and methodology.

I’m an Assistant professor of Political science in the Department of Sociology and Social Reserch of the University of Trento. I was previously a Max Weber Fellow (2017-2018) at the European University Institute, a post-doctoral researcher at the Institute of Humanities and Social Sciences of the Scuola Normale Superiore (SNS), in Florence, and at the Department of Political Science of LUISS University, Rome. I’m also an associate fellow of the International Center for Democracy and Democratization at LUISS University, a member of the Centre on Social Movements Studies at SNS and a research affiliate of the Italian Institute for Public Policy Analysis.

I got a PhD in Political Science in 2013 from the Istituto Italiano di Scienze Umane, in Florence, and I previously studied Methodology and Empirical Research for the Social Sciences (MA, Università di Firenze) and Sociology (BA, Università di Trento). I was visiting fellow at the Center for the Study of Democracy, University of California (USA), and at the Department of Sociology, Universiteit Utrecht (NL).
