Britta Brugman is PhD candidate and junior lecturer at the John Stuart Mill College and the Department of Political Science and Public Administration at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. Prior to this, she studied Communication Science at the same university, and held multiple research and teaching positions at the Faculty of Social Sciences.

The main question she aims to answer is how cognitive and affective responses to metaphorical frames interact in explaining voters’ beliefs, attitudes and preferences regarding economic policy.
