About Me

I am a PhD candidate in political science at George Washington University. In my current research, I explore the nexus between political values, migration, and democracy—with a focus on contemporary Europe. I seek to better understand why citizens support anti-immigrant and anti-establishment parties, as well as how elite framing influences public perceptions of so-called ‘others,’ including migrants and ethnic minorities. My research is methodologically eclectic and pragmatic, as I employ tools ranging from text analysis of social media content and online survey experiments to process tracing and comparative case studies.
