I am an Associate Professor of Political Science at the University of Barcelona and a Research Associate at Institut Barcelona d'Estudis Internacionals and Institute of Political Economy and Governance. My current research agenda investigates the political consequences of technological change, including artificial intelligence (AI), focusing on workers vulnerable to technological displacement. I hold an ICREA Academia research intensification award.
I have a long-standing interest in the political representation of marginalised groups. My book "Unequal Participation Worldwide" (Cambridge University Press) analyzed inequalities in voter turnout from a comparative perspective and argued that turnout gaps can be reduced through institutional reforms. A follow-up project examined if the interests of citizens are better represented by politicians of similar socio-economic backgrounds with detailed data about Spanish municipalities.
Before coming to the University of Barcelona, I was an Associate Professor at the Institut Barcelona d'Estudis Internacionals, and a post-doctoral researcher at the Spanish High Research Council and at Stanford University. I hold a PhD in Political Science from the Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona and have been the recipient of a Marie Curie Career Integration Grant. I was a Ramon y Cajal Researcher.
