 I work as a Professor of Politics in the Department of Government at the University of Essex. I am also an associate member of Nuffield College at the University of Oxford and affiliated Professor at the University of Amsterdam. I act as an editor of Research & Politics, dedicated to publishing short and accessible articles in an open source format. I have a strong commitment to unravelling some of the most important societal and political problems facing Europe today, such as the electoral ramifications of the Euro crisis, the rise of Euroscepticism, or the success of extremist parties. To this purpose, I coordinate large-scale projects collecting data on parties and public opinion towards Europe, facilitate interactions between academics and practitioners, and train young scholars in the area of European politics.
