Overview

About

I am a professor in the Department of Political Science at the University of Alberta (CANADA). I earned a B.A. in history from Brigham Young University, an M.A., also in history, from the University of Alberta, and earned a PhD from the Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies of the Johns Hopkins University (Johns Hopkins/SAIS) in Washington, D.C.


Research

My research and teaching interests are situated within the discipline of international political economy, particularly the political economy of North American integration. I have authored numerous pieces focused on Canada-U.S. relations, the politics of international trade and investment policy, U.S. foreign economic policy, and the impact of the global economy on forms of governance. My recent writing has included a focus on the contemporary debate over foreign direct investment rules and the experience with investor-state dispute settlement (ISDS) within the NAFTA area. I have recently started work on the impact asymmetrical power relations have had on the evolution of North America's political economy.
