An Associate Professor in the Department of Political Science at Memorial University, my research primarily focuses on the impact of globalisation and international political economy on Canadian public policy. 

I have published a number of articles and chapters on trade, banking and labour market policy. 

My current research projects include an examination of the role of the WTO DSP in Canadian foreign policy, an investigation of climate change related policy capacity in the finance sector and ongoing research on the Canadian financial services industry.
