Before that, he was a Marie-Curie BeIPD postdoctoral fellow at the DPIR (2016-2017, University of Oxford), F.R.S.-FNRS postdoctoral researcher at the Institut de sciences politiques Louvain-Europe (2016, UCL).

More generally, his research areas cover the study of political representation in European multi-level democracies, MEPs/MPs’ political career and legislative behaviour, regional and federal studies, local politics while he developed a specific interest in mixed-methods research designs. He was involved in several collaborative research projects on these topics, including, PartiRep II, Pathways, European Mayor, 2012 Walloon Local elections and ADAPOF.
