I am currently interested in public administration, public policy, intergovernmental relations, environmental policy and water policy in Canada and the US. My research focuses on policy implementation, ntergovernmental relations, policy capacity and policy implementation networks. I am currently focusing on policy networks and transboundary policy capacity in the Great Lakes region.
