Agnes holds an MSc degree in Public Opinion and Political Behaviour from the University of Essex and a BSc in Politics with Economics from the University of Bath. She is currently doing her PhD in Political Psychology at the University of Essex, researching how various forms of disagreements and negativity in politics affect social and political behaviour. She has taught statistics and programming at UK and German universities and has just returned from a research visit at the European University Institute. Outside of her academic life she is very much concerned with the issue of housing and homelessness around Europe so she spends some of her free time with research and advocacy on that. She is also a yoga and hiking enthusiast and does pottery to wind down.
