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.
PhD (MIT, 2001), MA (Toronto, 1992), BA (Toronto, 1991). Before joining Laurier in 2004 I was a postdoctoral fellow in political theory at Brown University.
Research Interests / Ongoing Projects
My interests are in political theory. My research explores problems of rationality, the structure and properties of attractive normative theories, and questions of justice and legitimacy in urban and global governance.
Student Opportunities / Supervising
I am available to supervise graduate students interested in political theories of justice, democratic theory, decision and game theory, and moral issues in urbanization, economic development, and global politics.
I occasionally have undergraduate research positions available, for which statistical and programming skills are sometimes desirable.
