My research explores subjective conceptualizations of citizenship in Europe, closely connected with democratic participation and identity. It contributes to our understanding about civic empowerment and commonality in our contemporary plural societies. I pursue methods of political science that contribute to a more complete and authentic view of political behaviors and norms, mainly by using discursive methods. I have expertise in deliberative discussions, argument repertoire and ambivalence, quantitative analysis and Q-methodology.
I have some experience in policy and program evaluation in social and employment policy.
I am enthusiastic about citizenship, democracy, and the EU. My research experience is in mixed methods and political theory.
