Thomas Bergeron

Thomas is a PhD candidate in the Department of Political Science at the University of Toronto. He is a Research Fellow in the Policy, Elections, and Representation Lab (PEARL) at the Munk School of Global Affairs & Public Policy.

Thomas’s research examines how individual differences and cognition influence information processing and selection, opinion formation, and, more generally, political behaviours of both politicians and citizens. For instance, he is interested in the implications of empathy in citizens’ opinion formation and behaviours.

Thomas received his Master of Science (MSc) in Political Science from the Université de Montréal where he was also a visiting student and intern at MILA (Montreal Institute for Learning Algorithms). He received his Bachelor of Arts from Université de Sherbrooke in Applied Politics.
