I am a Political Scientist who specializes in Public Opinion, Direct Democracy and Political Misperceptions. I have a passion for international politics and believe community-based journalism with an emphasis on critical thinking and perspectivism is greatly needed. My thesis analyzed political misperceptions during the Brexit referendum campaign. I became interested in this topic when I realized that a great number of people had been manipulated during the campaign and that there was a great chance this had affected the referendum´s outcome. In a world dominated by terms like fake news and post-truth, I aim to analyze how people process information and form their political beliefs using quantitative and qualitative methods.
