Larissa Peixoto Gomes

I'm a researcher at the Wales Governance Centre (Cardiff University), in the Wales Fiscal Analysis, with a PhD in political science from the Federal University of Minas Gerais, Brasil. When left to my own devices, I'll research political institutions, political representation, elections, gender, and ethnic minorities. Lately, I've become obsessed with Twitter research. For my PhD dissertation, I compared Brasil, Sweden, and the United Kingdom.

More details in the About me section.
