John Long Burnham

Senior Policy Research Analyst, University of Alberta

I currently work at the University of Alberta, having recently graduated with an MPP from the Max Bell School of Public Policy at McGill University. My professional background is in security and defence studies; in my current role, I produce war-gaming documents and non-classified briefings on military matters in the Indo-Pacific region for government clients. I have previously written for the NATO Association of Canada and I have been published by IRPP, CIDP, and SOAS.
