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).

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

My research/teaching interests include elections, political behaviour, Canadian politics, public opinion and research methods.

My works have been published in journals such as Journal of Politics, Electoral Studies, Representation, Canadian Journal of Political Science and the Canadian Journal of Communication.

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