Professor of Political Behavior

King's College London


I'm a Professor of Political Behavior in the Quantitative Political Economy Research Group of King's College London. 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.

I study people's experience of elections across countries, with the goal to identify both the positive and negative aspects of representative democracy and find ways to improve it. 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 National de la Recherche Scientifique, and the Montreal Centre for the Study of 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.
