About me

I am a PhD candidate in political science at the LSE’s Government department. I study the political behaviour of young people. My research uses quasi-experimental methods to address questions such as: How do young people respond to compulsory voting? And are 16-year-olds politically mature enough to participate in elections? Before coming to LSE, I worked as a researcher at the Children’s Legal Centre in London. I hold a Master’s degree from Sciences Po Paris and a Bachelor’s degree from the University of York.
