I am an Assistant Professor in Quantitative Comparative Politics at Durham University, UK, from 2017.

Prior to coming to Durham University, I held pre and post-doctoral fellowship positions at London School of Economics and Political Science [Government Department, 2013-2016] & University of Pennsylvania [Political Science Department, 2016-2017].

I was also a visiting scholar at the University of Pennsylvania [Alice Paul Center, 2016-2017] and at Oxford University  [Nuffield College and Rothermere American Institute, fall 2019]. My next visiting fellowship will take place at Harvard University [Government Dept., 2021-2022].

I obtained my PhD at the Department of Government at the London School of Economics in 2016. My dissertation [honourable mention, ECPG Best Dissertation Award] examined women's voting behaviour at the time of suffrage in the West. 

My research on women's suffrage appeared in the Journal of Politics (forth.), is now Revise & Resubmit in Comparative Political Studies, received funding from ESRC (£299,962) and BA/Leverhulme (£9,987) and received an APSA Best paper Award.
