Bio/Research

Fred Cutler (Ph.D. Michigan) does research in public opinion, elections, federalism, and political psychology. He has published in POQ, JOP, BJPolS, CJPS, Publius, Political Geography, Electoral Stuides, and has chapters in various edited volumes. A new research project involves lab experiments to understand the effects of different numbers of political parties on voters (electoraldemocracy.com). He has a SSHRCC-funded project on Polls and Elections, with J. Scott Matthews (Queen's), Mark Pickup (Oxford & SFU), and Paul Gustafson (UBC). His recent SSHRCC-funded research focussed on the effect of federalism on political behaviour and government accountability. Much of his work has investigated the influence of the local social and economic environment on how people think about politics. He is a keen user and teacher of leading-edge statistical methodology, the use of computer mapping (GIS) in political geography, and experimental research in political psychology.

I am one of four investigators on the current Canadian Election Study, the premiere academic survey on Canadian public opinion and voting behaviour. The grant is to study the next two federal elections. It is funded by SSHRC and Elections Canada. My collaborators are Patrick Fournier (U de Montreal), Stuart Soroka (McGill), and Dietlind Stolle (McGill).
