Personal profile


Please visit my website for more updated information and the latest version of my CV.

My research explores how politicians and citizens use social media to campaign during elections, with an empirical focus on the European Union and United States. I am particularly interested in how platform design influences how social media are used for politics. Apart from these interests, I have conducted studies on Russian disinformation, cyberattacks, populism, and Euroscepticism.
