YEAR OF ENROLLMENT
My research (in progress) focuses on the effects of political party regulations on parties’ organizational change in Western and Southern Europe. I earned my B.A in Political Science and International Relations at the University of Pisa, where I graduated in 2013. During those years, I had the opportunity to work as a trainee for the Observatory on Political Parties and Representation, at the European University Institute (Florence). I got my M.Sc in International Relations from the University of Bologna in March 2016. In my master thesis, I investigated the effects of public funding on political parties’ organizational structure in Italy, France and Spain. While writing the thesis, I spent some months as a visiting graduate student at Leiden University, on a scholarship form the University of Bologna.
