Academic Background

I studied both politics and classics in my undergraduate at the University of Ottawa and global governance and diplomacy in my Master's at Oxford.

I worked for a number of years for the Government of Canada in foreign policy, being awarded the 2008 Canadian Public Service Award of Excellence by the Clerk of the Privy Council and Secretary to the Cabinet in recognition of my efforts. My final post before returning to academia was at the Canadian High Commission in London.

Undergraduate Teaching

International Relations (214); IR in the Era of Two Wars (212); IR in the Era of the Cold War (213); and American Politics (205). I also teach special topics including The English School, Globalisation, Global Economic Institutions, and International Political Economy.

Research Interests

My current research examines hierarchy and stratification in international relations. I look at the shift from the club to the network forms of diplomacy, with a particular focus on the G8 and G20.

When not reading and writing, I'm usually playing my guitar.
