Associate Professor in Political Behavior

King's College London


I'm an Associate Professor (Reader) of Political Behavior in the Department of Political Economy of King's College London and Director of the Quantitative Political Economy Research Group. Prior to that, I studied and worked at the Université de Montréal and Université de Louvain. I've also held visiting posititions in the Paris School of Economics and Europe University Institute.

For my research,  I use (quasi) experiments to study people's experience of elections and representative democracy across countries, particularly how voters and parties react and proact to democratic institutions. Sometimes, I also attempt to contribute to methodological debates about the use of surveys and experiments in the social sciences.

Over the years, I’ve coordinated a dozen of surveys and experiments, mostly in Belgium, Canada, France, and the United Kingdom. In 2020, I also 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.
