I am a Lecturer in the Department of Political Economy at King's College London. My main field of research is comparative political economy with a focus on welfare state and labour market reforms, the political economy of labour migration, and the role of organised interests in policy reforms. My work has been published in the Socio-Economic Review, European Political Science Review, Governance, Social Policy and Administration, Policy and Politics, and the European Journal of Industrial Relations, among others. My book "Social Concertation in Times of Austerity" was published by Amsterdam University Press in 2013.
Before joining King's College, I have held postdoctoral research fellowships at the Max Planck Institute for the Study of Societies in Cologne (2011-2012) and the European University Institute in Florence (Max Weber programme, 2010-2011). I have also been a visting fellow at Johns Hopkins University (SAIS, Washington DC, 2011) and the University of Amsterdam (2008-2010). I earned my PhD in Politics at the University of Lausanne (Switzerland) in June 2010. I am one of the convenors of the ECPR Standing Group on the politics of Welfare and Social Policy Reform.
I occasionally blog here and tweete here. Some things that I have written on there have been featured in Science, the Times Higher Education, The Nation and Slate, among others.
