I have been employed by the University of Alberta since 2017 as an associate and full professor of political science. The University of Alberta is covered under the Alberta government’s Public Sector Compensation Transparency Act (2015).
From 2011 to 2017, I served in various senior management roles with the Government of Alberta (Executive Council, International & International Relations, and Public Service Commission). I am not under any obligations of non-disclosure, but choose not to break confidence regarding policy decisions in which I was involved.
My research is funded solely through grants earned via competitive, peer-reviewed competitions.
At present, my work is funded through the support of:
Beyond publishers, no organization has a right to review or edit my published work.
I am not a member of any political party at any level of government, nor is any member of my immediate family. I have made no political donations to political parties aside from membership fees associated with studying three (3) leadership selection processes: Progressive Conservative Party of Alberta: 2008, 2012; United Conservative Party of Alberta: 2017.
Upon invitation, I offer occasional, unpaid analysis to candidates, officeholders, and staff. I have provided such advice to people and organizations across the political spectrum.
On occasion and for a fee, I provide consulting and learning & development services to various organizations. I have not received significant financial support, summing to at least $10,000, from any single organization or entitity in the last 5 years.
To the best of my knowledge, no members of my immediate family have personal or financial relationships which would be viewed by a reasonable individual to constitute a conflict of interest with either my research or public commentary.
