I am a PhD candidate in the Department of Political Science at the Université de Montréal where I study Canadian elections, turnout and voting systems under the supervision of André Blais. I will be on the job market in 2021.
My substantive research interests include political behaviour, representation, the role of women in politics and citizens preferences for voting systems. Methodologically, I am interested in quantitative methods and experiments.
My research is supported by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council, the Fonds de Recherche du Québec – Société et Culture and the Richard J. Schmeelk Fellowship.
Prior to starting my PhD, I earned a Masters and Honours Bachelor of Arts and Science from the University of Toronto where I built a unique dataset detailing the district level data for all Canadian federal candidates from 1867-2017. This dataset includes unique id for each individual who ran for federal elections, riding names, province, date of birth for all elected MPs by year, gender, occupation, party names, switchers, vote shares and raw votes. You can find the dataset here.
