I am a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Institute for Advanced Study in Toulouse. I hold a PhD in Politics from New York University and a MSc in Economic and Social Sciences from Bocconi University.
My research studies the construction and change of group identities, and their implications for political competition, mobilization, and development in contemporary societies. I am particularly interested in how political elites and mass media shape the salience of ethnic and linguistic boundaries, and in how collective memories affect behavior.
I use econometric tools for causal inference on contemporary and archival data, as well as original surveys.
