Welcome!

Welcome!

I am a final-year DPhil (PhD) candidate in Politics at the University of Oxford. During the 2018-2019 academic year, I am a visiting researcher at the WZB Berlin Social Science Center.

My research interests include comparative political economy, comparative social policy, and immigration. My current research examines the effects of immigration on support for the welfare state among poor and rich voters in advanced democracies.

I earned a BSc and MSc in Political Science from Radboud University Nijmegen, and an MSc in Comparative Social Policy from the University of Oxford.
