Punctuated Gradualism Theory: Explaining Tobacco Control across Europe.
I am a third year PhD candidate at the School of Public Policy (UCL) where I teach courses on EU politics, political economy and international business. My research has featured in several journals contributing to different fields of studies: lobbying; business and government relations; political participation; freedom of information; political and business elite studies. I have also been involved in large research projects across universities, funded by external bodies, such as the British Academy and the Economic and Social Research Council.
My PhD explains policy change in tobacco control. In so doing, I investigate how the interaction between powerful actors, such as the tobacco industry, and public constituencies affects the introduction of public policies. My supervisors are Prof. David Coen and Prof. Peter John.
I graduated from the Bachelor’s and Master’s Degree in political science and European studies at the University of Trento as well as the MRes in European Studies at the European Institute, LSE.
