Hi! Thanks for visiting my website.

I am a researcher and social data scientist, currently a Fellow in Political Science and Public Policy at the LSE School of Public Policy. My work focuses on the development and the effects of migration and refugee policies in the developing world, as well as civic and democratic participation in the UK.

I currently work for the ‘Global Democracy Insight for Cabinet Office’ project, based at the University of Cambridge, as well as for the London Voices Project, financed by the Trust for London (as part of the3million campaign).

Over the last years I have taught various seminars at the LSE, including ‘International Migration, Public Policy and Social Integration’, ‘Politics and Institutions in Europe’, and ‘Introduction to Political Science’. I now teach ‘Political Science for Public Policy’.

Before joining the LSE, I worked as a consultant at the United Nations' International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) in Italy, as well as for the United Nations' High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) in Colombia.

My doctoral research has been financed by the UK Economic and Social Research Council and the LSE.
