Prior to joining Aston as a Lecturer in Politics and International Relations, I was a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the University of Exeter (UK). I received my PhD in Politics from the Autonomous University of Barcelona (Spain) in November 2015.
My research agenda is driven by a fundamental interest in the internal organization, and the electoral and governmental behaviour of political parties. To date, the primary purpose of my research has been to understand how political parties face changes in the political system and, hence, the party system where they compete. Parallel to this, my research has also focused on two additional issues linked to political parties, the main characteristics and behaviour of middle-level party elites and party activists and parties' adaptation to digitalisation.
