I am an associate professor and William and Jeanie Barton Chair at the Norman Paterson School of International Affairs, Carleton University. My current research examines executive power and legislative-executive relations in Westminster states, with a particular focus on foreign and defence affairs.
I am currently completing a project on legislative oversight of military affairs, with a co-authored book expected in 2021-22. My primary research project examines the idea of executive power in Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom, though the prism of the royal prerogative. Both projects are funded by the Social Science and Humanities Research Council of Canada.
In addition to my academic work, I am a part-time public office holder with the Government of Canada as a member of the Independent Review Panel for Defence Acquisition.
