About Me:

With my background in linguistics and political science, my current research focuses on party communication in electoral campaigns and party competition over issues and framing. I analyse how parties discuss such topics as migration, environment and energy and reveal the factors that influence their framing. Through my work in the SNSF project I became involved with the Comparative Agendas Project and have been doing some research on fracking issue in the Russian media coverage.
