Welcome to my website! My name is Lisanne de Blok. I am a PhD candidate in political science at the University of Amsterdam and affiliated with the Amsterdam Institute for Social Science Research (AISSR) and the programme group Challenges to Democratic Representation. I am currently a visiting scholar at the Quality of Government Institute, in Gothenburg. My PhD research focuses on the policy-feedback link between government performance and political trust and studies the key factors moderating this relationship (see projects for more information). In June 2019, I intend to submit my Doctoral thesis. My research interests include political trust, public opinion, political psychology, and performance voting, as well as quantitative methodology.
