Research Interests

My research addresses the reasons why people support democratic systems - mainly performance of democratic institutions, welfare state policies, and the results of their political participation. My papers have appeared in Political BehaviorParty Politics, European Political Science Review, Politics, East European Politics and Societies, among others.

However, I tend to get easily excited about topics reaching beyond the above-mentioned clusters. Therefore, some of my works deal with population growth models, youth political participation, adoption of postal voting, and democratic innovations (mostly in Central and Eastern Europe - CEE).

 

Background

Prior to joining the University of Oslo, I was a Finnish Cultural Foundation postdoctoral research fellow at the University of Helsinki (2019-2020) and a research specialist at Masaryk University in the Czech Republic (2019-2020). During the course of my doctoral studies at Masaryk University (PhD awarded in 2019), I spent a year at the University of Tartu in Estonia (2017-2018) and a seven month period at the University of Helsinki (2018).
