Dr Robert Liñeira

  • Lecturer in Politics (Politics)

Biography

I am Lecturer in Politics at the School of Social and Political Sciences at the University of Glasgow.

I previously was Assistant Professor at the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid (2018-2019) and Research Fellow at the University of Edinburgh (2014-2017). I received my PhD from the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (2012).

Research interests

My research deals with public opinion and political behaviour, particularly, on issues related to territorial questions.

I have worked on three main topics: voting in multi-level contexts, citizens' preferences on the territorial constitution in multi-national polities, and referendum vote choice.

I use mainly quantitative methods, relying both on observational and experimental data.
