She focuses her research on how context influences political behaviour and opinions. Some of the questions that describe her latest lines of research are "How do discourses affect opinions?", "How do neighbours affect participation?" or "How do party strategies influence voters' perceptions?"[1]

In May 2016 she completed her PhD at the University of Leicester (UK) in Politics and International Relations. Her research project was named Issues, party strategies and voter behaviour: a dynamic approach and explored the variations of the issues parties discuss in electoral contexts and how this affects the voters behaviours. Nowadays, she’s a Politics Professor and Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Autonomous University of Barcelona in the Department of Politics and Public Law.


She has taught at University of Leicester as an assistant at the Department of Politics and International Relations; as well as Essex Summer School in Social Science Data Analysis.
