Dr Robert Liñeira
- Lecturer in Politics (School of Social & Political Sciences)
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 (2018-2020) and Research Fellow at the University of Edinburgh (2014-2018). I received my PhD from the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (2012).
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.
I am happy to supervise PhD students examining:
- Political behaviour
- Public opinion
- Comparative politics
- Territorial politics
- Scottish and Catalan politics
- Survey research
