I joined Cardiff University in January 2020. Prior to this appointment, I was a Lecturer in Spanish and International Politics at King’s College London.

I hold a PhD in Politics from the University of Manchester (2015), an MA in International Relations: Global Governance and Social Theory from the University of Bremen, Germany (2011), and two BAs in Political Science and Latin from Lund University, Sweden (2009).

My research is located in the interface between European Politics and political and social theory. I’m particularly interested in social movements and political parties on the left, and especially cases of left-wing populism in Southern Europe. I use radical democratic frameworks to further our understanding of democracy in Europe, the challenges to our current liberal order, but also the possibilities for democratic reform.

Future research projects include left-wing populist responses to nationalism, and resistance to European integration from the left. I also have a strong interest in the role of social media for political action, and how emotions and affect influence the way we think about political identities.

My research is located in the interface between European Politics and political and social theory. I’m particularly interested in social movements and political parties on the left, and especially cases of left-wing populism in Southern Europe. I use radical democratic frameworks to further our understanding of democracy in Europe, the challenges to our current liberal order, but also the possibilities for democratic reform.

My research broadly has three main components. First, I have researched and published on social movements and protest, particularly in Spain. Second, I now work on left-populist movements in Southern Europe, their development and internal organisation, and how social media influences the work of political parties. Third, I work on democratic theory, and new conceptions of political subjectivity. I have a longstanding interest in how emotions and affect figure in democratic theory.

Future research projects include left-wing populist responses to nationalism, and resistance to European integration from the left.
