Welcome!

I am a Post-Doctoral Research Fellow at the Department of Social and Political Sciences, Bocconi University in Milan, Italy. I received my PhD from the Department of Government, University of Essex in Colchester, UK.

My research interests include political violence, non-violent resistance, and quantitative methods. In my work, I study different types of political mobilization and their determinants, dynamics, and outcomes. My research has been published in the Journal of Conflict Resolution and the Oxford Research Encyclopedia of Politics.
