I am a PhD candidate in Political Science at the Université de Montréal(Canada) under the supervision of Ruth Dassonneville. I do research at the intersection of political behavior and political economy. My dissertation explores the role of local factors on citizens’ assessments of the nation’s economic performance. I am funded by the Fond de recherche du Québec Société et Culture (FRQSC).
I am also interested in questions on representation, responsiveness, the political consequences of housing markets and the congruence between citizens and political parties. Methodologically, I have a keen interest for causal inference, experimental methods in social sciences and smart identification strategies.
From 1970 to 2018, either the Québec Liberal Party or the Parti Québécois won the elections in Québec. The Coalition Avenir Québec ended this long period of bipartisan alternation by winning a majority of seats in the 2018 election. Using datasets that cover five elections (2007, 2008, 2012, 2014, and 2018) over a period of 11 years, we provide a unique longitudinal perspective of citizens’ vote choice calculus. More specifically, we analyse long-term factors that are known to be crucial to make sense of electoral outcomes. Do factors such as generations, sex, attitudes towards Québec sovereignty and party identification have the same weight in voters’ calculus over time? Our results show a relative stability, but also several interesting variations, especially regarding the effect of support for Québec independence. This perspective deepens our understanding of recent political developments in Québec politics.

I really like data visualizations. I make use of this website to display some graphs in the header. The current figure is a dot density map using UK Census data. It provides information on London residents aged 16 and over by their living arrangements. I used the table KS104EW from the 2011 UK Census.
