I'm an Assistant Professor in the Department of Political Economy of King's College London. I received a PhD in political science from the University of Louvain in 2013, and spent a few years as a postdoctoral fellow at the Research Chair in Electoral Studies of the University of Montreal.


My research lies at the intersection of political behavior, political economy, and comparative politics. Right now, I'm particularly interested in developing new experimental and quasi-experimental designs as to better understand electoral behavior. Before, I worked on the consequences of electoral systems (postdoc research agenda), and the causes of electoral reforms (PhD research agenda). Political scientists would say that my approach is rational choice, but economists would say that I'm behavioralist.


At King’s College London, I teach about elections, comparative politics, and quantitative methods. I'm also the Director of the undergraduate programme in Politics.


My work appears in Comparative Political Studies, Political Science Research and Methods, the European Journal of Political Research, European Union Politcs, West European Politics, Party Politics, and Political Research Quarterly among other outlets.
