Research Interests

His research interests lie in the area of Canadian political behaviour.

Current Research Projects

He is currently working on a SSHRC-funded project entitled Partisan Ties in a Social Environment with Prof. Laura Stephenson.  This work considers the influence of interactions within social networks on political attitudes, partisanship and behaviour in Canada.  They take a particular focus on the role of personality and generation in these dynamics.

He continues to work on topics relating to the relationship of the economy and elections.  Currently, he is focussed on  the relationship of economic conditions on incumbent mayoral success in Canada.  Separately, he studies the sources of responsibility attributions for economic conditions made by citizens.
