Irene Sánchez-Vítores is assistant profesor at the University Rey Juan Carlos de Madrid. Previously, she received her PhD from the Department of Political and Social Sciences at the European University Institute (Florence, Italy). Her research relates to political orientations and behaviour, with an emphasis on gender inequalities and the multidimensionality of political interest. More generally, she is interested in the process of formation of political orientation and how life-cycle events and learning shape political inequalities. She is also interested in the methodological implications of this research and how it can be applied to better understand citizens’ attitudes. My research has been published in the Revista Española de Investigaciones Sociológicas, Social Politics or Political Psychology.
