About Me

I am specialized in political socialization, political attitudes, and electoral choice. My research can be grouped into three broad themes.

  1. Democratic transitioning: The legacy of authoritarian regimes on democratic attitudes.
  2. The origins of political attitudes: Socialization, age, and generations.
  3. Stability and dynamics of political attitudes using household panel studies.
