My core interests are public attachment to the European Union and the meaning of the EU to different publics. I am also interested more generally in European identities and public attitudes to EU integration. My main methodological focus is on experimental approaches, but I have worked with and am interested both in traditional quantitative survey-based research as well as qualitative critical discourse (CDA) approaches.
