Associate Professor of Political Behavior
King's College London
I'm an Associate Professor of Political Behavior in the Department of Political Economy at King's College London and the Director of the Quantitative Political Economy Research Group. Prior to my current position, I studied and worked at the University of Montreal and University of Louvain. Additionally, I've held visiting positions at the Paris School of Economics and European University Institute.
In my research, I study people's experience of elections and democracy across different countries, with the goal to identify both the positive and negative aspects of representative democracy. Over the course of my research, I’ve coordinated a dozen of surveys and experiments, mostly in Belgium, Canada, France, and the United Kingdom. In 2020, I directed the European Political Institutions Survey, an inter-university project and a large-scale survey covering 15 Western European countries. I’ve been financially supported by the British Academy, the Belgian Fonds de la Recherche Scientifique, and the Montreal Centre for Democratic Citizenship.
I'm a political scientist by training but I frequently collaborate with economists trying to bridge the two disciplines. Political scientists would say that I'm a rational choice analyst, but economists would say that I'm behaviorist.
