About my research…

My research interests focus is digital politics: use and impact of the digital technologies by Canadian political actors. In addition to conducting research on e-campaigning in the last five Canadian federal elections, I have published work on political memes and the regulatory framework for digital technologies in Canadian elections. I am the co-author of Fighting for Votes: Parties, the Media and Voters in an Ontario Election (UBC Press) and the co-editor of Political Communication in Canada: Meet the Press, Tweet the Rest (UBC Press) and Mind the Gaps: Canadian Perspectives on Gender and Politics (Fernwood Press). My work has been published in the Information Communication and Society, Party Politics and the Canadian Journal of Political Science. I am a team member of Online Citizenship Canada supported by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) and the the primary investigator on the SSHRC funded project called Digital Campaigning in Canada: A Comparative Study.
