Caterina received the PhD in Political Science from the European University Institute of Florence (2015) and she is currently a VOX-Pol Research Fellow at the University of Oxford where she works on right-wing extremism and radicalism in a comparative perspective. Previously she was a post-doctoral fellow and instructor at the Centre d'Etudes Européennes of Sciences Po Paris (CEE-CNRS) where she worked on “The Structure and Organization of Governments” project under the supervision of Prof. Philippe Bezes. Caterina holds a B.A. in Political Science from the University of Florence and a double M.A. from the Institut d’Etudes Politiques of Paris in Political Sociology and Public Policy.
Caterina’s research is comparative and it develops on two main lines. The first deals with issues related to party government and policy agenda dynamics, and the second deals with the relations between extremism and democracy with a special focus on organizational structures, militancy trajectories and online activism in established and non-established far right organizations. Caterina is currently a co-convener of the European Consortium of Political Research (ECPR) section on “Populism and Political Extremism”.
Her recent contributions have appeared on Party Politics and the International Journal of Conflict and Violence, as well as a number of edited volumes. More info about her research, teaching and publications is available here
