Larissa Peixoto Gomes

I'm a research officer at the Wales Centre for Public Policy (Cardiff University), with a PhD in political science from the Federal University of Minas Gerais, Brasil and. I mostly research political institutions, political representation, gender, and ethnic minorities. For my dissertation, I compared Brasil, Sweden, and the United Kingdom. I believe in academic partnerships, democracy, and baking as a form of stress relief. More details in the About me section.
