I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Political Science and the graduate coordinator of the Criminology and Criminal Justice Policy (CCJP) program at the University of Guelph. My research and teaching interests include assisted reproduction, public policy, constitutional law, and federalism. I am the author of Assisted Reproduction Policy in Canada: Framing, Federalism, and Failure, published in 2018 by the University of Toronto Press. I am also the co-author (with F.L. Morton) of the edited textbook Law, Politics, and the Judicial Process in Canada (4th edition), which was published in 2018 by the University of Calgary Press.
Prior to moving to Guelph, I completed my PhD in political science at the University of Calgary, and was a Killam Postdoctoral Fellow in the Faculty of Medicine at Dalhousie University from 2014-2015. My current research project examines the governance of naturopathic medicine in the Canadian provinces.
