Introduction
I am a political scientist interested in electoral behavior and comparative politics, with a focus on the impact of historical legacies on electoral turnout and the reasons behind the vote for European populist parties. In my research, I mainly use comparative public opinion survey data and quantitative methods. I have been involved in H2020 MICADO and H2020 RePast research projects.

As for the individual level, it has been argued that the so-called ‘losers of globalization’ – the less educated and less skilled, profiles with higher job insecur...

Focusing on six populist radical right parties from four Central and Eastern European countries, we show that the factors that account for the vote for these parties in Western Europe do not travel well to Central and Eastern Europe. Euroscepticism boosts populist radical right party voting almost without exception, while nativism, regarded as the...

The traditional Spanish imperfect bipartisanship and the alternation in power that emerged in the early 80s between the center-left PSOE and the conservative PP have shifted towards a multiparty system after the emergence of three new parties.

By analysing the immigrant population in 101 regions from 11 European countries, we show that in contexts with a large immigrant presence, the low-educated voters tend...
Article
Despite the growing literature on populist radical-right parties (PRRP), the relationship between turnout and populist voting remains understudied, especially for Central and Eastern Europe (CEE).

Project
Addressing the challenge of migrant integration through ICT-enabled solutions, in MICADO Migrant Integration Cockpits and Dashboard, experts from public administration, migration research, and IT create an EU-wide applicable business intelligence solution in support of migrant integration, and pilot it in Antwerp, Bologna, Hamburg, and Madrid. The solution leverages existing and new data to design digital services for three user groups: 1) migrants and refugees, 2) engaged civic society, and 3) public authorities. The technological solution generated has been co-created and tested in different phases (co-creation, usability tests and piloting) with the participation of 742 people (405 migrants, refugees and asylum seekers, 145 workers and heads of public administrations, 192 workers and heads of civil society organizations). They have also been supervised by LESC or local committees of experts and stakeholders. The co-created solution core characteristics are: Multi-lingual content (English, German, Spanish, Italian, Dutch, Chinese, Arabic, Urdu and Dari); Voice-over function to facilitate inclusive access for users with limited literary skills or reading difficulties; Glossary of terms; Basic Information by topic of interest (employment, health, education, housing, and participation); Step-by-step guide on administrative procedures; Events & Courses; Chatbot and personalized integration plans.
