About me

I will start a Lecturer (Ass. Prof., tenure-track) position at the University of Edinburgh, Politics and International Relations (PIR), in January 2020. Very excited — and looking for recommandations about things to see or do in the city!

I am currently a post-doctoral fellow at the Center for the Study of Democratic Citizenship, McGill University. Previously, I did a research stay at the Institute for Quantitative Social Science (IQSS), Harvard University.

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

My work has been published in the Journal of PoliticsElectoral Studies (2x), West European PoliticsParty PoliticsRepresentationGovernment and OppositionCanadian Journal of Political Science (3x), Canadian Journal of Communication, Canadian Public Policy, Politique et Sociétés (3x) and Perspective on Politics.

The Motivation to Vote, co-authored with André Blais, is forthcoming at UBC Press [Feb. 2020].

Media: I often give interviews for different Canadian (CBC/Radio-Canada, Globe & Mail, etc.) and international (New York Times, Diari Ara, etc.) media. If available, I’ll be happy to chat.
