I am a Vice Chancellor's Illuminate Fellow in Political Science at Queen's University Belfast with a focus on comparative politics and public policy. I am an affiliated scholar at The Good Lobby and Secretary of the Political Studies Association of Ireland.

I received my B.A. and M.A. degrees from the University of Bologna and my Ph.D. from Trinity College Dublin.

My two areas of specialisation are Interest Group Politics and Transparency Research. While the first focuses on the examination of interest group influence on public policy, the second explores the way in which contemporary governments have opened to public scrutiny through open data and other tools. I hope to advance new bridges between Comparative Politics and Public Policy Analysis by combining these two areas of research.
