Alba Huidobro

Politòloga i Màster en Recerca en Ciència Política
per la Universitat Pompeu Fabra


I am PhD candidate in the program Political and Social Sciences at the Universitat Pompeu Fabra, under the supervision of the Dr. Aina Gallego. I am graduated in Political Science and Public Administration, and Master in Research in Political Science from Universitat Pompeu Fabra. My specialization is in the study of political behaviour of citizens and political leaders, electoral systems and multilevel governance through quantitative research methods.

Currently, I am a pre-doctoral fellow from the Spanish Ministry of Economy, Industry and Competitiviness (FPI), linked to the project LEADERS at the Barcelona Institute of International Studies (IBEI). My thesis “The Effects of Leaders on Coalition Governments” focuses on the mechanisms of formation of post-electoral coalitions and to what extent these are defined by the attitudes and individual characteristics of the political leaders.
