Thanks for visiting my site. I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Political Science at the University of Calgary. During the 2017-18 academic year, I will be a Research Fellow at the Calgary Institute for the Humanities. I am also currently Assistant Editor of the Canadian Journal of Political Science.

I am interested in urban politics and Canadian political development, with a particular focus on the historical development of public policies and democratic institutions in Canadian cities. An overview of my past and current research is available on my research page.

Before coming to Calgary, I was a Killam Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Alberta for the 2014-15 academic year. I completed my PhD in political science, under the supervision of Graham White, at the University of Toronto in July of 2014.
