I am a PhD candidate at the Department of Politics and International studies and recipient of the Chancellor's International Scholarship (2019-2023). Before beginning my PhD at Warwick I completed a MSc in Political Science at the University of Montreal. I am supervised by Ece Özlem AtikcanLink opens in a new window and Alexandra HomolarLink opens in a new window.

Research

My PhD thesis, "An Ever-Closer Union or Further Disintegration? Citizens’ Emotions and Perspectives on the European Union and its Future" (provisional title), aims to understand how European citizens' emotions shape their attitudes towards the European Union and its future. More generally, my research interests include EU studies, emotion research in International Relations, and political and social psychology.
