About me

My research lies at the intersection of several different sub-fields: public opinion and political behaviour, accountability and policy feedback, immigration and multiculturalism, and survey and experimental design. I engage with broad sociological concepts such as multiculturalism, anti-immigrant sentiments, as well as integration and alienation.

I received my PhD in Political Science from the Government Department at the LSE in 2021, and went on to research adaptation trajectories of descendants of refugees at Stockholm University, as a post-doctoral researcher in the ERC funded project "A Better Life for the Children of Exile: Intergenerational Adaptation of the Descendants of Refugees".
