Michalis Moutselos was a Post-Doctoral Research Fellow at the Department of Sociocultural Diversity. He completed his Ph.D. in Political Science at the Department of Politics, Princeton University in 2016. He studies the determinants of political behavior and political protest among persons of immigrant origin in European democracies. A secondary research focus relates to the transformation of political conflict in European democracies in the aftermath of the Eurozone and refugee crises.
