I am a Senior Lecturer in Politics at the School of Politics and International Relations of the University of Kent. I am also affiliated to the Centre d'étude de la vie politique (Cevipol) Université Libre de Bruxelles. During the academic year 2012-2013 I was a Max Weber Fellow at the European University Institute. I hold a PhD in Political Science from Trinity College Dublin.
From October 2009 to September 2012 I worked at the University of Amsterdam (UvA) as a lecturer and post doctoral fellow, where I contributed to the Support and Opposition to Migration (SOM) project, funded by the European Commission’s 7th Framework Program. I taught a number of courses on New Technologies and Electoral Competition, Media and Politics, Electoral Campaigns, Research Methods and Politicization of Immigration.
