I received my PhD in Political Science from York University in 2006 and my MA in International Affairs from the Norman Paterson School of International Affairs, Carleton University in 1996.
Prior to joining Laurier, I was a SSHRC postdoctoral fellow at the Institute on Globalization and the Human Condition at McMaster University and assistant professor in the Department of Politics at Trent University.
I teach in the Department of Political Science and with Laurier’s School of International Policy and Governance at the Balsillie School of International Affairs. I am also a research associate with Laurier’s International Migration Research Centre (IMRC) and assistant editor of the journal Citizenship Studies.

My research focuses on border security, migration and citizenship within North America and Europe. Research projects include:
I may have research assistantship opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students interested in migration, citizenship and border security. Opportunities for fieldwork may also be available in the summer. Contact me for more information.
I am willing to supervise graduate students in the areas of international relations/global governance/international political sociology and with a particular interest in migrant/citizenship politics, migration and mobility; border security; asylum seekers and refugees; cultural pluralism.
