Linda Basile, PhD

Political scientist

About me

I am a Research fellow in Political Science at the University of Siena and co-editor of the peer-reviewed journal European Political Science (Impact Factor 2.436).

My main research areas include territorial politics, electoral politics, public opinion and party politics. A central theme in most of my research is how the distribution of competencies and socio-economic resources across territories and levels of government influences both party strategies and public opinion. I have expertise in social science research methods, with a focus on content analysis and survey research.

I teach research design and quantitative methods, public opinion, survey and data analysis, design thinking and participatory processes.

Besides research and teaching, my academic profile has been also enhanced with additional project management and project writing skills. Working on several collaborative projects, I also gained significant experience in data management, open access, ethics, dissemination, and communication.

I studied Politics and International Relations (BA) and Government of the European Union (MA) at the University of Catania. I received my doctorate in Comparative and European Politics at the University of Siena.
