Davide Morisi on the influence of information in political campaigns

Davide’s research focuses on political behaviour and public opinion, with a specific emphasis on political psychology.

While writing his PhD thesis, he spent a period as a visiting student at New York University, working with the research team of Professor John Jost. Before joining the EUI, he gained a Master’s degree in Media policy at the London School of Economics, and a BA and an MA from University of Bologna.
