I am Associate Professor and William Dawson Scholar in the Department of Political Science at McGill University, in Montreal, Canada. Most of my research focuses on the sources and/or structure of public preferences for policy, and on the relationships between public policy, public opinion, and mass media. This site includes links to some of my recent work, as well the original datasets and software used in that work, and recent teaching.
