Professor of Political Science, Carleton University
I am a professor of Political Science at Carleton University, where I have taught since 2000. My teaching and research interests focus on Canadian politics and political institutions and I have published widely on Parliament, prime ministers, and related topics. I am also a former president of the Canadian Study of Parliament Group. I also have a strong interest in Ontario politics, with two recent books, The Politics of Ontario (co-edited with Cheryl Collier) and Fighting For Votes (co-edited will William Cross, Tamara Small and Laura Stephenson).
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, and I am now engaged in a SSHRC-funded project studying PhD career development issues.
