His doctoral dissertation (defended on September 2017) deals with the ability of political parties to shape citizens’ attitudes toward the European Union. It is a quantitative study that uses observational as well as experimental data to investigate how, and under which conditions, parties are able to influence what people think about the integration process, and the implications that this top-down process has for the accountability of the political elite. The thesis has been directed by Eva Anduiza (UAB) and Jordi Muñoz(UB). The first chapter has been published by European Union Politics.
His research interests include Euroscepticism, party cues, EU politicization, information processing, experiments and research methods.
