At the EUI, Annabelle Wittels will be using experiments and quasi-experiments to investigate how attitudes relevant to policy preferences and vote choices, in particular attitudes on immigration and prejudice, spread through social networks.

Before joining the EUI, Annabelle completed a PhD (2016-2019) on ‘Experiments on bureaucrat behaviour and public participation’ at University College London (UCL). Her research interests centre on political behaviour, elite decision making and public opinion. With a background in international development and extensive field experience in Sub-Saharan Africa, Annabelle is also always keen to keep an eye on research about the Global South.

During her PhD, Annabelle was a teaching assistant at Kings College London where she taught a Masters level course on Causal Inference (Dr. Florian Foos) and a Bachelor level introductory course on social science methods (Dr. Adrian Blau).
