I will be a post-doctoral fellow at the department of Government at the London School of Economics and Political Science. My appointment starts on 01 September 2014. Check back for updates on my contact details and further details.
I have just returned from the 6th conference on the Political Economy of International Institutions (PEIO). It was an amazing experience! I met a lot of interesting people and my presentation was a success. A pdf version of the poster entitled “Fiscal Governance in the Eurozone: How effective is the Stability and Growth Pact limiting public debt?” which I have presented can be found here. The paper the poster is based on is collaborative work with Thomas König. The current version of the paper can be found here.
The book “Image of U.S. Presidential Administrations. The cases of Bush and Obama” which was edited by Célia Belim and Patrícia Calca is now available. I had the pleasure to provide a chapter to this book. In our chapter, Patrícia Calca and I analyze the differences in the political reactions toward the economic crisis by Bush and Obama. We show that the different reactions of Bush and Obama can be clearly measured in their State of the Union Addresses. You can find out more about the book here.
The call for papers for the 13th annual “Strategy and the Business Environment” conference hosted by the McCombs Business School at the University of Austin at Texas can be found here.
