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 Party Politics , European Political Science Review, Politics , East European Politics and Societies , and Contemporary Politics , 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).
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).
