Welcome to my website!
I am a Ph.D. student at the Center for Doctoral Studies in Social and Behavioral Sciences at the University of Mannheim. I am also a doctoral researcher at the University of Barcelona. During my studies, I have been a visiting PhD student at UC Berkeley and a pre-doctoral fellow at CESS-Nuffield Flame University in Pune. I hold a master’s degree in Political Science from the University of Mannheim and a bachelor’s degree in Political Science and Public Administration from the University of Barcelona. Previously, I also studied Spanish and Latin American Studies at the Universities of Dalarna and Gothenburg.
I carry out research in the areas of comparative politics and political psychology, with a focus on identity politics and a regional interest in Europe and India. I am particularly interested in the consequences of rising ethnic nationalism and in my dissertation I explore how minorities in India respond to deepening exclusion in terms of social identity choice and preferences for resistance. I have also carried out research on national identities and opinion formation regarding immigration, political behaviour in multi-level settings as well as the descriptive representation of immigrant-origin minorities. My work is published in the British Journal of Political Science and Electoral Studies.
