I have active interests in such fields as natural resource development, Indigenous rights, northern political economy, science and technology policy, and Japan studies. I have worked at universities across Canada (Brandon, Victoria, UNBC, University of New Brunswick, University of Saskatchewan and the University of Waterloo) and internationally (University of Waikato in New Zealand) and have a long-standing interest in post-secondary education. AMong my publication on the latter topic are Campus Confidential, Dream Factories: How Universities Will Not Solve the Youth Job Crisis, and What to Consider When You Are Considering University. Oher publications include Land of the Midnight Sun: A History of the Yukon, A Global History of Indigenous Peoples, The Palgrave Handbook of Arctic Policy and Politics, and From Treaty Peoples to Treaty Nation: A Handbook for All Canadians.
