Biography

I am a Research Associate at the University of Manchester, based in the Cathie Marsh Institute. I work for the project ‘Digital Campaigning and Electoral Democracy’ (DiCED), a new comparative project for the study of the drivers and effects of digital campaigning in 5 countries and 7 national elections during the period 2020-2023. I have recently obtained my PhD at the University of Nottingham, School of Politics and International Relations. My PhD thesis focused on UK MP communication during the EU referendum, addressing the relationship between representation and the dynamics, frequency, and content of their political communication.
