I am a Professor in the Department of Political Science and the Munk School of Global Affairs & Public Policy at the University of Toronto. For the 2018-2019 academic year, I am a Fellow at Stanford University's Center for Advanced Studies in the Behavioral Sciences

From 2016 to 2018, I was the Director of the School of Public Policy and Governance, which I lead into a merger with the Munk School of Global Affairs.   

I am substantively interested in questions of elite and citizen behaviour and the role of technology in improving governance and representation. I've published my work in journals of political science, economics, biology, and general science. My Google Scholar profile is here.

I came to Uof T in 2010 after postdocs at UBC and UCSD. I received my PhD from Université de Montréal in 2008 and my BA from Mount Allison University in 2002. For the 2016-2017 academic year, I was a Visiting Research Scholar at the Center for the Study of Democratic Politics in the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs at Princeton University. In January 2014, I was a visitor at the Melbourne School of Government, University of Melbourne.

From 2012 to summer 2017, I was Assistant Editor of the Canadian Journal of Political Science. 

I have taught in several fields, including Canadian politics, American politics, political behaviour, comparative politics, and experimentation.
