I am professor of political science at the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, where I enjoy an ICREA Academica research leave. Before coming to the UAB I was associate professor at the University of Murcia and assistant professor at the University of Salamanca. I hold a PhD from the European University Institute. My main areas of research deal with citizens involvement in politics. I direct the Master in Political Science and the research group on Democracy, Elections and Citizenship. I live with my husband and kids near Collserola.
