cropped-sbp_5551_v.jpgI am currently a post-doctoral researcher at the Political Science Department, University of Zurich, with a focus on Political Psychology and Behavior. I hold a PhD from the European University Institute in Florence. In my research, I study citizen competence and political decision-making, mainly in direct democratic settings. More specifically, I am interested in citizens’ political knowledge, motivated reasoning, the functioning of elite-cues versus policy-arguments and deliberation in decision-making, integrative complexity of political thinking, as well as the link between deliberative and direct democracy.
