Broadly speaking, my research focuses on political behaviour and participation, public opinion, elections, experiments, and Canadian politics. I am currently involved in projects that explore the impact of context complexity on the propensity to vote and how the complexity of the decision environment affects the vote decision calculus that is employed and the choice that is made.
