Since my appointment as an assistant professor in political science at Sciences Po Grenoble and a research fellow at Pacte, my work has focused mainly on electoral change in Western Europe. My current research project is entitled ‘Politics in times of crisis: economic crises and political competition in Western Europe, 1973-2008. It compares the consequences of the 2008 financial crash and the 1973 oil crisis on party competition in the three main democracies at the heart of Europe’s political and economic organization: Germany, France and Great Britain.
My PhD thesis looked at change in working-class voting patterns in France and Germany in 1945-2009. Presented in December 2012 it brought me the prize for the best thesis awarded by the Franco-German University in 2013. I went on to do a post-doctoral research fellowship at Nuffield College, Oxford in 2013-14, followed by a two-year stint as a FRS-FNRS research fellow at the Université libre de Bruxelles (Cevipol) in 2014-16.
In the meantime, I became heavily involved in election studies. I have been principal investigator of the 2015 regional elections study and the Dynamob panel survey, which included 18 waves of questioning between September 2013 and December 2017 (with Vincent Tiberj). I have also been principal investigator of the French Election Study 2017 (FES2017), following the presidential election (with Nicolas Sauger). I am also actively involved in exploiting the aggregate results of elections. For more details, see my regularly updated CV.
