I am the Director of the School of Public Policy and Governance and an Associate Professor of Political Science at the University of Toronto.  

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.
