Renaud’s specialty is popularization. On a daily basis, he helps make the work of the Institute’s research staff accessible to the general public. This involves editing opinion pieces for clarity, helping to write press releases, and ensuring the language used in publications and media interventions remains accurate, while being understandable without an advanced economics degree.
He also handles the Institute’s communications strategy, bringing together new, legacy, and social media plans in order for its publications to reach the largest possible audiences.
Renaud holds a bachelor’s degree in business administration from the École des sciences de la gestion at the Université du Québec à Montréal. Throughout his career, he has worked in communications and media relations for large non-partisan advocacy organizations.
When he’s not working, Renaud is an avid cook, a cinephile, and a whisky afficionado, with a marked preference for the peaty stuff coming from the Isle of Islay (Scotland).
