Predoctoral Fellow FPI

Biography

I am a predoctoral fellow at the University of Barcelona, where I am enrolled in the program of Law and Political Science, holding a FPI grant at IBEI, linked to the project of ‘Transparency policy in a context of multilevel governance’ coordinated by Laura Chaqués. My thesis will be looking at the basic income policy and debate in a comparative perspective. Previously, I have done a Master’s in Political Analysis and Institutional Advising at the University of Barcelona. During this time, I also collaborated with the Spanish Policy Agendas Project, most notably within the projects of Transparency in a multilevel context of governance and Interest Group representation in Spain. Before this, I worked within the Cultural Attaché Office of the Saudi Arabian Embassy in Madrid. I also hold a BSc on Politics and International Relations from the University of Bath in the UK.
