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, Canadian 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.

There is also a book (with André Blais) under review, which I hope to share with you soon – before the end of 2018.
