Welcome to my website!

I am Lecturer in Political Economy at the Department of Political Economy of King's College London. I am also research associate at the Centre for Analysis of Risk and Regulation of the London School of Economics and Political Science.

My research addresses questions related to the insulation of policy-making from politics and the electoral process, both at the national and the European level. My work has mainly focused on the democratic legitimacy and accountability of independent regulatory and executive agencies, and the relationship between these organisations and political and societal actors.

My research interests include delegation theory, regulation and regulatory agencies, democratic accountability and legitimacy, and institutional theory.
