About Me

My dissertation focuses on the temporal aspects of elections and democracy. Developing a theoretical concept “Chrono-Work”, I study how we imagine the past, the present, and the future after elections and how these imaginations enable to tell a reliable story about “the people” and about democracy.

I also study national identity, performative theory, collective memories, narratives, quantitative and qualitative methods, and political behavior.
