Welcome

Nov.620200193[1]

I am an Associate professor of political science at the University of Montreal. I completed my doctoral thesis on the political economy of carbon taxation in the OECD at the University of Toronto in 2011. Currently, I am the principal investigator for the Canadian Surveys on Energy and the Environment (CSEE) and Research Partner with EcoAnalytics.

Broadly focused on the social and political responses to complex policy problems like climate change, my work examines the role of values, ideology, and contextual factors in shaping risk perceptions and public opinion, as well as the interactions among media, public opinion, and public policy.

I am currently engaged in several research projects examining the social and political responses to climate change, pathways to environmental engagement, opinion formation in the context of a changing environment, as well as the measurement of political ideology and cultural 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.
