Welcome to my homepage at Uni-Stockholm. I am a post doctoral researcher at the University of Milan where I work in the ERC funded REScEU (Reconciling Social and Economic Europe) project (PI Maurizio Ferrera). Currently I am visiting the Institute for Future Studies in Stockholm and will be teaching Political Theory at Uni Stockholm this fall. My main research interests are at the intersection between political economy and religion. In my work I show how the remainders of religious ideas still influence our socio-economic thinking even in an age of increasing secularization. In the REScEU project I have explored this against the backdrop of the North South conflict that has evolved between Southern (Catholic and Orthodox) and Northern (Protestant) member states in the European Union. I am also interested in the influence of socio-economic ideas and ideology on welfare policy and on the inner workings of ideas and ideologies.
