My research focuses on Canadian and comparative public policy, investigating why governments choose some policies over others. Much of my research has focused on water policy development in Canada and elsewhere, but my more recent work has expanded into other environmental policy areas and even into health and criminal justice policy. A common strain in all of my research is the application and development public policy process theories, and I have published work using many of the mainstream theories of the policy process, though I am best known for my work using the ACF.
