I received my PhD in political science from McGill University in 2009. Prior to joining Laurier, I was a postdoctoral fellow at the Canada Research Chair in Electoral Studies (CRCES), Université de Montréal.
My research focuses on political participation and behaviour, electoral politics, public opinion, and Canadian politics. My most recent work explores the mechanisms that influence voters as they deliberate upon their vote choice and political preferences. I have been especially interested in the interaction between political cognition, political interest and contextual factors that influence the effort allotted to the vote deliberation process and preference formation.
I am willing to supervise students interested in Canadian politics, political participation and behaviour, and public opinion, as well as students interested in studying 'new' forms of political engagement.
