I am a professor of Political Science at Carleton University, where I hold the Honourable Dick and Ruth Bell Chair in Canadian Parliamentary Democracy.
My teaching and research interests focus on Canadian politics and political institutions, as well as Ontario politics.
My other strong interest is in PhD mentoring and career development issues. My most recent book, co-authored with Loleen Berdahl, is Work Your Career: Get What You Want From Your Social Sciences and Humanities PhD. I am now engaged in a SSHRC-funded project studying PhD career development issues.
