Early Stage Researcher (ESR)
I received a B.A. in journalism in North Carolina, USA, in 2008 and M.A. in European Media Studies at the University of Exeter in 2009. My M.A. dissertation examines media coverage of the 2004 European elections in the Czech Republic and Slovakia, and a shortened version was presented at the ECPR Fifth Pan-European Conference on EU Politics in Porto in June 2010.
My thesis project concentrates on the effect of media content and media exposure on electoral volatility in national elections in post-Communist countries. Relationship between media and political parties and the effect of media on democracy and voting in both national and European elections are among my research interests.
During my ELECDEM research contract I undertook a period of secondment at the European University Institute (Florence Italy).
