Short presentation

I hold a Ph.D. in economics from the IIES (Stockholm University) and I am currently a Postdoctoral researcher at the CONPOL project, and an affiliated researcher at SOFI (Stockholm University). I do research in applied microeconometrics, and political and institutional economics, in particular voting for radical right parties, identity formation, and political participation.

You can find my doctoral thesis, Radical Right, Identity, and Retaliation and my CV at my personal website.
