I am a Postdoctoral Prize Research Fellow at Nuffield College, Oxford and the University's Department of Politics and International Relations (DPIR). 

My research interests fall within the domain of comparative democratic politics, and can be broadly classified into two subfields. The first is the study of electoral institutions and their relationship to democratic outcomes. The second is political sociology, with a particular interest in the role of occupation and education in shaping political values. 
 

I completed my DPhil at Mansfield College, Oxford; previously, I graduated with first class honours from St. Antony's College, Oxford (MPhil in European Politics) and the University of Manchester (Bachelor's Degree in Politics and International Relations). You can find here a copy of my CV.

In my research, I employ quantitative methods, and I have a keen interest in the use of statistical techniques for social measurement.

I have taught, in various capacities, a range of topics in political sociology, comparative government, European and  British politics as well as quantitative methods. 

I am no longer active on social media, so your best bet to get in touch is to drop an email at leonardo.carella@nuffield.ox.ac.uk

In particular, if you are a student looking to apply for post-graduate studies, I am happy to offer advice and (a reasonable amount of) feedback. Emails from individuals from backgrounds that are underrepresented in academia are especially welcome.

The causes of freedom, peace, human rights and democracy in Eastern Europe are particularly close to my heart. Please consider making a donation to promote these aims in Ukraine or in Belarus
