My research will continue to center on privatization of public services. My current projects include a study on the competitiveness of social service markets; an exploration of the factors that influence jurisdictions to adopt relational, as opposed to formal, contracting schemes; and the factors that impact the level of trust a contracting government holds towards its contractors. I am also working on papers which examine make-or-buy decisions, sector choice, and service termination.
