Ms Mutlu-Eren is an LSE Fellow in Political Science and Public Policy in the Department of Government at the London School of Economics and Political Science.

She received her Ph.D. in Politics from New York University. She also holds a Master's degree from King's College London. 

Her main research is in comparative political institutions and political behavior in advanced industrialized democracies. Her work builds on analytical and empirical accounts of party competition and coalition politics. In her current research she studies intra-party dynamics and provides an account of stable party by examining, in particular, the challenges posed on party leaders by their party members as well as the party leaders' use of pork-barrel politics as a strategy to keep their party united.
