Maxandre is currently studying international relations at the Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM) under the supervision of Justin Massie. His research, funded by SSHRC and FRQSC, focuses on how US allies – mainly Canada and Australia – perceive the decline of the US and the rise of China, and the strategies they are putting in place to cope with this shift. His policy briefs on the UK’s Integrated Review and Taiwan’s loss of diplomatic allies won him first prize in the Network for Strategic Analysis’ Best Student Publication competition in 2021 and 2022.
In addition to his involvement with the Network, Maxandre has collaborated with the Centre d’études sur l’intégration et la mondialisation (CEIM) and the Centre de recherche interdisciplinaire sur la diversité et la démocratie (CRIDAQ), as well as working at the Vice Dean’s Office for Research at UQAM’s School of Management Sciences (ESG-UQAM).
