Thomas Galipeau


Thomas Galipeau is a Ph.D. student in the department of Political Science at the University of Toronto and a Research Fellow in the Policy, Election, and Representation Lab at the Munk School of Global Affairs & Public Policy. Previously, he earned a master’s and a bachelor’s degree in political science at the University of Montreal.

His research revolves around the large field of political behaviour. Specifically, he is interested in how specific cognitive processes influence political behaviours, attitudes, and ideological beliefs. For instance, how does partisan attachment or emotions influence political outcomes? His scholarship relies on observational data mainly analyzed through quantitative means but also focuses on using experimental methods.
