Welcome to my academic research site. For information on my private-sector work in survey research and data science, please see my LinkedIn profile.
I am a survey scientist at Momentive (previously known as SurveyMonkey) and a “recovering academic.” I am affiliated with the Laurier Institute for the Study of Public Opinion and Policy at Wilfrid Laurier University. I was previously a Research Social Scientist (Senior Research Fellow) in the Institute for Social Science Research at the University of Queensland, and before that, a Lecturer in the School of Social and Political Sciences at the University of Melbourne, and a Visiting Fellow at the School of Government and Public Policy at the University of Strathclyde.
My research interests are public opinion and foreign policy, comparative public opinion and political behaviour (focusing on Canada, the United States, Europe, and Australia), spatial and contextual models of political behaviour, and quantitative methods. I received my PhD from the Department of Government, University of Essex in 2016 where I was supervised by Thomas Scotto (now at the University of Glasgow).
My work has been published in a variety of journals, including the European Journal of Political Research, Political Geography, Public Opinion Quarterly, Social Science Research, the International Journal of Public Opinion Research, Energy Policy, the Australian Journal of International Affairs, and the Canadian Journal of Political Science.
