I am a political scientist in the field of European Studies with an interest for democracy, political communication, and political identity. After having studied national and ethnic identities, I am currently interested in transnational identities, such as the European one, and their political manifestations. I am asking in particular what is the influence of social media on polarization in both the EU and the US. My research orientation can be summed up as democracy, digitalization and participation.
I got my PhD in political science (Comparative Politics and International Relations) from the University of Maryland at College Park and my master from Northeastern University. I am the vice-chair of the Center for European Studies and the program coordinator for the MA program in European Studies. I have also worked as a US-based correspondent and political analyst for BBC Radio, Romanian Service and as a course coordinator at the Harvard Business School.
