Before that I was an assistant professor in the Graduate School of Public Policy at Simon Fraser University, and a postdoctoral fellow in the political science departments at Carleton University, Queen’s University, and Memorial University. I received a Ph.D, which was supervised by Ken Carty, from the University of British Columbia in 2009. 

I write about representation, political parties, local government, and online political communication. I teach courses primarily on Canadian government and politics.

In 2014, I received an Rh Junior Award for outstanding social science research contributions.
