My research lies at the intersection of political behavior and comparative politics with a focus on elections and electoral rules. I use a wide range of quantitative methods to better understand people's experience of representative democracy, and find ways to improve it. I also sometimes try to advance surveys and experiments methodology, and in the past QCA and Fuzzy Sets.
These last 10 years, I’ve conducted a dozen of surveys and experiments in various countries, but mostly in Belgium, Canada, France, and the UK. To do so, I’ve been financially supported by the (Canada), the (UK), and the (Belgium). I'm currently leading an inter-university survey aiming at eliciting people's preference for political institutions in 15 West European countries.

Political scientists would say that I’m a rational choice analysist, but economists would say that I’m behaviorist. My work thus appears in journals from both disciplines like CPS, EJPR, PSRM, Party Politics, Electoral Studies in polisci; and JPUBE, Public Choice in econ.
I’m currently the Convener of the . I'm also the Director of the and of the PhD programs in Political Science and Political Economy at King’s College London.
