Elsa Massoc, PhD

Max Weber Post-Doctoral Fellow


I am a Max Weber post-doctoral Fellow at the European University Institute. I completed my PhD in Political Science at UC Berkeley in Summer 2018. My main research interests are in Comparative Political Economy, business and politics, inequalities and the regulation of finance. My dissertation explores the role of public actors in shaping different European trajectories of finance after the crisis. Before graduate school, I earned a M.A. from Sciences-Po Paris in European Affairs and from Paris IV-Sorbonne in History.

Outside of academia, I am a birder, a fiction writer, and a horse-back rider.

Here is my CV, and here is my Google Scholar page.
