Hi, welcome to my site!

My name is Álvaro Canalejo-Molero. I am a PhD candidate at the European University Institute. Previously, I did my Bachelor at the University Pablo de Olavide of Seville and my Master at the IC3JM of the University Carlos III of Madrid. I’ve also been a visiting researcher at the European Institute of the London School of Economics.

Under the supervision of Prof. Hanspeter Kriesi, my thesis looks at how different indicators of democratic engagement affect and get affected by new party entry in Western democracies. Besides comparative politics, parties and behavior, I’m interested in causal inference designs and computational methods applied to social sciences.

Thanks for the visit!
