I am PhD candidate in political science at the International Conflict Research group, ETH Zurich. I was a visiting researcher at UC Berkeley’s Institute for Eastern European and Eurasian Studies during the 2022 spring semester.
My main research interests concern the origins and consequences of political identities at the intersection of comparative politics, historical political economy and international relations. I rely on observational data and computational methods to measure and study nationalist and ethnic processes in new settings and with innovative research designs.
My dissertation studies how border change resulting from imperial conquest and collapse contributed to the formation of national identities in Europe between 1750 and 1945. In co-authored projects, I also study the dynamics of public opinion and religious clientelism.
