Welcome to my academic research site. For information on my private-sector work in survey science and data science, please see my LinkedIn profile.
I am a research scientist at SurveyMonkey and a “recovering academic.” I have previously held full-time academic positions at the Institute for Social Science Research at the University of Queensland and the School of Social and Political Sciences at the University of Melbourne. I have also been a Visiting Fellow at the School of Government and Public Policy at the University of Strathclyde, and have taught in the Department of Political Science at Wilfrid Laurier University.
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.
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, Environmental Politics, Energy Policy, and the Canadian Journal of Political Science.
