research
The main fields of research that I concentrate on are political behaviour and Canadian/Quebec politics. My research interests include ethnopolitics, political psychology, electoral politics, sub-state nationalism and ethnic conflicts. I tend to explore the influence of ethnic identity on political behaviour. Also, I seek to understand political behaviour, in citizens and elites, in a general manner.
