I'm a political theorist and SSHRC postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Communication at the University of Ottawa. I study democratic deliberation, political decision making, and digital media. I'm also a contributing columnist for the Washington Post, a writer for Maclean's Magazine and a few other outlets, and I provide regular political commentary for television, radio, and print. My first book Too Dumb for Democracy? Why We Make Bad Political Decisions and How We Can Make Better Ones is out March 2019. In 2012, I did the Mongol Rally, and now I'm researching my next adventure.
