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 worked as a postdoctoral fellow at the Research Chair in Electoral Studies of the University of Montreal between 2012 and 2015.


My research lies at the intersection of political behavior, political economy, and comparative politics. Political scientists would say that my approach is rational choice, but economists would say that I'm behavioralist. Right now, I'm interested in developping new voting experiments as to better understand the dynamics of elections, in particular regarding party strategies and voting behavior. I also sometimes try to contribute to methodological debates in social sciences. My work appears in Comparative Political Studies, the European Journal of Political Research, West European Politics, European Union Politics, Party Politics, Political Science Research and Methods, Political Research Quarterly, Politics & Gender, the Election Law Journal, French Politics, and the Journal of Elections, Public Opinion, and Parties.


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