I'm an Associate Professor in Political Behavior at 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 UCLouvain. I've also held visiting positions at the Paris School of Economics and European University Institute.


In my research, I study elections, voters and parties using surveys and experiments. I try to understand people's experience of representative democracy across countries and political systems, and sometimes work at the advancement of methods in social sciences. 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. My fields are: political behavior, comparative politics (in polisci) and political economy  (in econ).


These last 10 years, I’ve coordinated a dozen of surveys and experiments in Western Europe, as well as Canada and Indonesia. To do so, I’ve been financially supported by the British Academy, the Belgian Fonds de la Recherche Scientifique, and the Montreal Centre for Democratic Citizenship.
