I earned my doctoral degree in 2018 by successfully defending my dissertation, Growing into Voting: Election Turnout among Young People and Habit Formation. This study delved into the intricacies of young voter turnout, exploring the factors that contribute to the formation of voting habits. Beyond this focus, my research spans various aspects of political participation, encompassing party choices and political engagement. My explorations also extend into diverse research fields such as social trust, public corruption, welfare services, and local democratic institutions. Recently, my research has delved into the pertinent issue of political urban-rural polarization.
My approach to addressing these research questions is rooted in quantitative methods. Beyond research, I actively contribute to education by teaching quantitative methods at both bachelor's and master's levels, and I play a role in supervising theses at both levels.
