Social media platforms have altered longstanding power relations between politicians, the media, and citizens. What this means for democracy remains an open question. My research explores how politicians and citizens adopt social media to campaign during elections, with an empirical focus on the European Union and United States. I specialize in the use of computational methods to interpret social media analytics. Apart from electoral campaigning, I have conducted studies on Russian disinformation, cyberattacks, populism, and Euroscepticism. I am passionate about research dissemination and do my utmost to accommodate speaking requests. You can reach me via the "Contact" page.
