About me

I completed my PhD in political science at the Université de Montréal in August 2018 and I am currently a SSHRC post-doctoral fellow at the Center for the Study of Democracy Citizenship (McGill University – the lovely city of Montréal).

Previously, I did a research stay at the Harvard Institute for Quantitative Social Science (IQSS), Harvard University, where I presented my work and conducted a survey experiment on citizens’ attitudes toward politicians.

My research/teaching interests are quite broad. They include political behaviour, public opinion, Canadian politics, comparative politics, political communication and research methods.

I have been published in journals such as the Journal of Politics, Electoral Studies, Representation, Government and OppositionCanadian Journal of Political ScienceCanadian Journal of Communication and Perspective on Politics.

I also have a book accepted for publication at UBC Press (co-authored with André Blais). Looking forward its publication in 2019.
