Guillem Vidal Lorda

Welcome! I am a social science researcher at the Joint Research Center, where I am part of the DIGCLASS project focusing on the interaction between inequality, digitalization and social policy.

I obtained my Ph.D. in Social and Political Sciences from the European University Institute. I have also been a postdoctoral researcher at the Berlin Social Science Center and at the Geschwister-Scholl-Institut.

With a background in economics and international relations, I have a multidisciplinary approach to my areas of interest, which span across the fields of comparative politics, political economy, and political sociology.

My work has been published in West European Politics, Party Politics, Nations & Nationalism and Cambridge University Press, among others. You can have a look at my publications and my profile on Google scholar and Researchgate, where most of my work can be dowloaded in open access.
