Work experience
Research experience:

European University Institute, Florence: PhD. Research project 'Imagining Europe' (2009-present).

The project strategy for this research involved intensive cooperation with a self-assembled team of around 7 students in each of the three countries for data collection (Estonia, Italy, the Netherlands). This taught me significant skills in project and team management, organising information exchange, and data collection design. It also allowed me to train students as interviewers and required me to advise students on the methodology in their own projects.
