I am a graduate student of political science at ETH Zurich. I visited UC Berkeley’s Institute for Eastern European and Eurasian Studies between February and September 2022. My dissertation is part of the ERC-founded NASTAC project led by Lars-Erik Cederman.
My main research relates to the origins and consequences of mass identities and political behavior based on inherited traits, such as language and religion. I rely on observational data and computational methods to measure and study nationalist and ethnic processes in new settings and with innovative research designs. My dissertation uses data on nationalist publications and political claims to study the origins of nationalism across Europe 1750–1945.
Other research projects of mine concern the dynamics of public opinion and in particular the effects of electoral outcomes on partisanship.
