I am a Ph.D. candidate at the Department of Political Science at the University of Zurich  and the Centre for Democracy Studies Aarau.

My research is part of the NCCR Democracy, a research program that assesses “Challenges to Democracy in the 21st Century.” In our project we assess how metropolitan governance affects citizens’ political behavior and attitudes.  My research interests include public opinion, metropolitan areas and multi-level governance in a comparative perspective. In my dissertation, I analyze public support for the political integration of metropolitan areas in Western Europe.
