Research & Teaching

I am an affiliate researcher in the Centre d'analyse politique - Constitution et Fédéralisme (CAP-CF) at the Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM), an associate member of the Centre d’Études et de Recherches Comparatives sur les Constitutions, les Libertés et l’État (CERCCLE) of the Université de Bordeaux, and within the Courts & Politics Research Group. I am also an advisor to the steeting committee of ACFAS-Toronto..

I am currently involved in several research initiatives. I am writing a book on the history and impact of the Court Challenges Program of Canada. My other research projects pertain to the determinants of judicial decision-making at the Supreme Court of Canada, Canada's compliance with international law, public signage policy, and the bilingualism of Canadian legislators online. Below are my peer-reviewed and book chapter publications. Further below are the courses I teach on a regular basis at the University of Windsor.
