About me

I completed my PhD August 2018 and am currently a SSHRC post-doctoral fellow at the Center for the Study of Democracy Citizenship, McGill University.

I will start a Lecturer (Ass. Prof., tenure-track) position at the University of Edinburgh, Politics and International Relations, in January 2020. Very excited — I’m open to any recommandation on the city!

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 StudiesWest European PoliticsParty PoliticsRepresentationGovernment and OppositionCanadian Journal of Political ScienceCanadian Journal of Communication, and Perspective on Politics.

The Motivation to Vote, co-authored with André Blais, is forthcoming at UBC Press. Expected Feb. 2020 (fingers crossed).
