“Mind the Bricks: Fairness Beliefs and local housing inequality in the UK”

Anna is a PhD Candidate in Political and Social Sciences at the European University Institute. Her research focuses on the origins of meritocratic beliefs and their persistence over time, in citizens’ attitudes and within political discourse, using experimental methods and computational text analysis. As part of her thesis, she explores the evolution of meritocracy in political discourse through a computational quantitative analysis of the past 100 years of US congressional speeches. Anna has visited Stanford University as a Schuman Fulbright Scholar. Previously, Anna completed an MPhil in European Politics (Oxford, 2020)
