Short Biography

Diana Burlacu is currently involved in the HEALTHDOX project (from February 2015) and has been in our team since September 2013, after finishing her PhD on Quality of Governance, Political Attitudes and Electoral Behavior. Previously, Diana was a Marie Curie Fellow in the Electoral Democracy (ELECDEM) project. Her main research interests are the contextual effects of various structures (e.g. good governance, welfare state, or health care regimes) on individual behavior and attitudes. Her most recent study is on the impact of health care insurance on political participation, where she examines whether German privately insured citizens are less involved into politics using the longitudinal German Socio-Economic Panel from 1990 till 2013.
