Francesco Colombo

I am a postdoc at the Department of Political Science of Aarhus University, where I am working with Kim Mannemar Sønderskov on the effects of neighborhood and school inequalities on trust. I obtained my PhD from the European University Institute. At the EUI I have been working under the supervision of prof. Elias Dinas.

l am interested in the interplay between individuals and contexts. Specifically I try to better understand how local communities and institutions help to provide individuals with information, influencing their perceptions, preferences and behaviour.

The topic I am most interested in are:

  • trust and social capital

  • voting behaviour

  • economic inequalities

  • social policy preferences

I have a strong interest in quantitative methods. I love working both with observational and experimental data. But I am always willing to follow the research question.
