As of February 2019, I am a Research Fellow at the Department of Social and Political Sciences, Bocconi University.

I am also completing my PhD at the Department of Government, University of Essex.

My research interests include intrastate conflict, contentious politics, and quantitative methods.

In my work, I study different types of political mobilziation and their determinants, dynamics, and outcomes.

Part of my work is forthcoming at the Journal of Conflict Resolution.
