I currently hold a ‘Ramón y Cajal’ research fellowship at the Department of Political Science, Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB). Between 2009 and 2011, I visited the University of California, Santa Barbara and Berkeley, with the support of a mobility grant from the Spanish Ministry of Science and Innovation and the Fulbright Scholar Program. My research interests include voting behavior, public opinion, and political leadership. My work has been published in journals such as Political Psychology, Political Behavior, Electoral Studies, and South European Society & Politics. I am also author of a book on the perception and electoral influence of party leaders in Spain (Líderes políticos, opinión pública y comportamiento electoral en España. Madrid: CIS, 2009), and co-editor of a volume on the 2011 general elections in Spain (Elecciones generales 2011. Madrid: CIS, 2014).
