About me

I completed my PhD in political science at the Université de Montréal in August 2018 and I am currently a SSHRC/CRSH 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 include political behaviour, public opinion, 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 Science and the Canadian Journal of Communication.

There is also a book (with André Blais) under review, which I hope to share with you soon!
