Becoming a Golden Hawk means more than just cheering on our (really good) varsity teams – it means being a student who cares about your community, who works hard in the classroom, and who takes advantage of all the learning opportunities that can happen outside the classroom, too.

I received my PhD in Political Science from McGill University in 2007 and my BA in Political Science from the University of Toronto in 1995. I have been teaching at Laurier since 2006.
My research encompasses both historical and contemporary studies of Canadian citizenship, multiculturalism, immigration and refugee policy. At present I am working on two main streams of research: the first explores changes to Canadian citizenship acquisition, maintenance and revocation in the 21st century, and the second surveys Canadian policies towards asylum seekers in the post-Second World War period.
I have also been working on Canada-U.S. border control policies in the post-9/11 period.
I am interested in supervising graduate students in most any area of Canadian politics (but especially with respect to institutions and the policy-making process) as well as both Canadian and comparative citizenship, multiculturalism, immigration and refugee policy.
