Marie Curie Fellow, Bocconi University
I work as a Marie Curie Fellow at Bocconi University, Milan. Previously, I was a research fellow at the National Endowment for Democracy in Washington DC and at the University of Cambridge, where I also obtained my PhD.
I am an empirical political economist combining theoretical innovation with analytical rigour and contextual knowledge on Eastern Europe.
