Research

My main research interest lies in the intersection between Political Behaviour, Comparative Politics, Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs), and quantitative methods.

My current research agenda includes:

  • Electoral politics, with an emphasis on British and Chilean politics
  • Community engagement and solidarity initiatives
  • Social media and collective action
  • Elite politics: candidates and legislators from a comparative approach
  • Public opinion, party identification, and overseas aid
  • Latent variable estimation
  • (Not so) big data, data management, visualisation, and automated collection
