Research Interests

  • Political ideology
  • European integration
  • Supranationalism
  • Brexit

I am interested in political behaviours and attitudes in regard to European politics and how psychological variables, such as ideological predispositions and social identities, influence people's views on the European project and supranationalism more generally. One strand of my research deals with the impact that the EU-referendum in the UK has had on British citizens' national identification and their perceptions of in-and outgroup members. Using longitudinal research designs, I aim to explore whether Brexit has different effects on people who voted 'Remain' or 'Leave', as the divorce from the EU unfolds.
