welcome to my site
I am a Canadian political scientist specializing in International Relations and Comparative Politics. I focus on Comparative Indigenous Politics in Canada, Australia, New Zealand, United States, American foreign policy, New Zealand foreign policy, and Anglo-American Diplomacy. My mother's family is Trinidadian Indian and my father's family is originally from Scotland but goes back many generations in Nova Scotia. Since these roots have been important in my upbringing and influence the direction of my work, I inevitably bring a multicultural perspective to pressing issues in political science which I hope creates a useful angle through which to assess some aspects of international and domestic politics. Please feel free to have a look and explore my articles, chapters, and books, read my blog and check out my links page. You will also find information on my SSHRCC grant on Indian Residential Schools in Canada. If you'd like some more information or just want to say hello, please email me! And if you really like or dislike my work, please let me know why.
