About

I am Professor of Politics in the School of Government and International Relations at Griffith University, Brisbane. Before joining Griffith in September 2014, I was a Marie Curie Fellow (2012-2014) and a Jean Monnet Fellow (2011-2012) at the European University Institute in Florence. I previously worked as a lecturer and researcher at the University of Turin and have also been a Swiss National Science Foundation Fellow at the University of Lausanne. My main current research interests are political parties, populism and Euroscepticism. In November 2016, I received two Australian Research Council Discovery Project 3-year Awards for studies on radical right populist parties in Europe (with Annika Werner) and on Indigenous members of Australian political parties (with Michelle Evans). I was also part of a team (with Ann-Cathrine Jungar, Cas Mudde & Anders Ravik Jupskås) which won a Swedish Research Council grant for a 4-year project on right-wing populist youth wings. I am the co-author (with Daniele Albertazzi) of Populists in Power (Routledge, 2015) and the co-editor (with Nadia Marzouki and Olivier Roy) of ‘Saving the People: How Populists Hijack Religion’ (OUP, 2016). Since 2010, I have published articles in journals such as the European Journal of Political Research, Journal of European Public Policy, Political Studies, Party Politics, West European Politics, and South European Society and Politics.
