My research addresses two core dimensions of the politics of healthcare. First concerns the effect of political institutions and ideas on healthcare policy making. Second dimension looks at attitudes toward healthcare, in particular how attitudes are shaped by policy feedback effects and political ideology. I investigate these two topics empirically analyzing health policy and attitudes in post-communist countries of Eastern Europe and Europe more generally.
Work in progress:
Health Reforms in Post-Communist Eastern Europe: The Politics of Policy Learning (book manuscript under contract with Palgrave Macmillan)
I am currently also a Co-PI (with E. Immergut and D. Burlacu) on the project ‘Responding to COVID-19: Government Action, Government Rhetoric, and Public Trust’, which is part of the EUI COVID-19 Knowledge Hub.
