I am an Associate Professor at ESPOL (European School of Political and Social Sciences) at the Catholic University of Lille and a research associate at the CEVIPOL (Centre d’Etude de la Vie Politique), Université Libre de Bruxelles.My research focuses on party politics (primary elections, intra-party democracy, political leadership and party membership), digital politics, quality of democracy, regionalism and territorial politics, regional, national and European elections, and political behavior. I recently published in Politics and Policy, Acta Politica, Comparative European Politics, Religion, State & Society, Ethnopolitics, Italian Political Science Review and Regional & Federal Studies. My work is mostly (but not exclusively) based on quantitative methods and survey research. I recently published an edited book on ‘The Quality of Democracy in the 21st century’ with Routledge (2018).I was previously a Research Fellow at the Christ Church and at the Department of Politics and International Relations of the University of Oxford (2011-12).
