I am the Stein Rokkan Chair in Comparative Politics at the European University Institute, in Florence.  

I am a Fellow of the British Academy, and a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts.

My main areas of research and teaching are comparative, European, and EU political behaviour and institutions – in particular parties and party systems, public opinion and voting behaviour, electoral systems and the design of democracy, and legislative behaviour.
