Research interests: comparative politics, party competition, social movements, political participation, crisis politics, cleavages, Eastern Europe, research methods. You can find more information about my ongoing research, published in scientific, or general media outlets.
Previously I received my PhD in December 2018 from the Department of Political and Social Sciences of the European University Institute, with a thesis on “Parties and protests in crisis-hit Europe: continuity and change in the structure of political conflict”. Before that I studied political science at the Central European University (still) in Budapest, focusing on electoral politics. You can find my more detailed cv here.
