I am an assistant professor of political science at the University of Montreal. In 2011, I completed my doctoral thesis on the political economy of carbon taxation in the OECD. I obtained my Ph.D. from the University of Toronto where I worked under the direction of Louis Pauly and Neil Nevitte.

My current research interests are in comparative public policy, energy and environmental politics, public opinion, science and technology conflicts, research methods, and experimentation.

I teach courses on comparative environmental policy, the politics of climate change, and research methods.

I am currently engaged in several research projects examining the comparative politics of climate change policy in federal contexts, the politics of risk and scientific expertise, public opinion on hydraulic fracturing and climate change, and the measurement of political culture and worldviews. This research is funded by various agencies including the Social Science and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) of Canada as well as the Fonds de recherche sur la société et la culture (FRQSC) of Quebec.
