I am a PhD Candidate in the School of Government and Public Policy at the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow, where I work under the supervision of Dr Zachary Greene. Also, I worked on different projects such as Devolved Disagreements with Dr Zachary Greene, the COHESIFY project with Dr Gabriela Borz and Dr Heinz Brandenburg, the EUINACTION: Willingness and Capacity for EU Policy Action in Times of Crises: Conflicts, Positions and Outcomes led by Dr Zachary Greene, and the Rural-Urban cleavage in Spain and beyond led by Dr Pedro Riera.

My PhD thesis, “Leaders and Speeches under Devolution in Multilevel Countries”, addresses the importance of the issue of decentralization and devolution in leaders’ speeches and examines how diverse characteristics affect leaders’ speech positions over decentralization and devolution. More broadly, my research focuses on applications of computational social science, including quantitative text analysis, survey data, and in a more substantive way, party (and intra-party) politics, devolution and decentralization, political behaviour, and comparative politics.
