I am a senior research and teaching associate at the Department of Communication & Media Research at University of Zurich. My primary areas of research include Comparative Political Communication, Media Bias, Media Use and Effects, Political Attitudes and Behavior, Media Systems and Media Structures, and Interpersonal Communication. I have been research and teaching assistant at University of Fribourg, and studied Political Science at University Pompeu Fabra (BA) and Political Communication and Marketing at Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (MA). For more than seven years I have also worked as a political advisor and assistant at several Catalan institutions.
