About Me

My research interests include Euroscepticism, European identity and the European public sphere as they relate to European Union democracy. I am currently working on a number of projects:

Online Euroscepticism and media negativity. This project examines the extent to which there is a systematic negativity bias in the selection, framing, amplification and reception of EU news. Specifically, it examines online news and social media engagement in the context of the 2014 European Parliament elections in Germany and the UK.

Euroscepticism and Transnational Solidarity at a Time of Crisis. This project examines how EU solidarity is constructed and contested in the public sphere, focusing in particular on how Eurosceptic actors respond to and challenge the EU’s emerging framework on European solidarity in the context of the Euro crisis.

My monograph ‘The Euro Crisis and European Identities: Political and Media Discourse in Germany, Ireland and Poland’ is currently under contract with Palgrave Macmillan. This investigates the impact of the “Eurozone crisis” on the construction of European identities in Germany, Ireland and Poland.
