Melanee Thomas, PhDPhD in Political Science with specialization in gender, political behaviour, and Canada McGill University
Areas of Research
My research primarily focuses on the causes and consequences of gender-based political inequality in Canada and other post-industrial democracies, with a particular focus on political attitudes and behaviour. My current projects include an exploration of the effects of gender, stereotypes, and psychological orientations to politics, women in the Canadian political executive, and the role of parental status in politics.
My research and teaching both include a focus on empirical research techniques, with particular focus on measurement. In particular, my research employs a mixed methods approach and uses a variety of empirical techniques -- large N data analysis, experiments, interviews, content analysis.
Working with this supervisor
Ideally, the students I bring onto my research team would be interested in the empirical study of gender and politics and/or Canadian politics. Students should be eager to build their empirical research skills, both as research assistants and in their own work.
