I am an Associate Professor and Canada Research Chair (Tier2) in Comparative Federalism and Multilevel Governance in the Department of Political Science at Wilfrid Laurier University. Since 2017, I am also a Fellow at the Balsillie School of International Affairs.
My research examines how federal systems and more encompassing multilevel spaces of political and economic integration – like the European Union and North America – adjust to new international and domestic challenges. My work is deeply embedded in longstanding and emergent conversations about the nature of federalism internationally.
I lead an active research program, receiving as principal investigator and co-applicant multiple grants from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) that support the core research and international collaborative partnerships that drive my program.
