University of Victoria

Happy to announce my Adjunct Professor position at the School of Public Administration at the University of Victoria has been extended to 2019. Looking forward to continuing work with University of Victoria media super star Lindsay Tedds as well!!

Editorial Board

I’m happy to announce I’ve become a member of the editorial board of Defense and Peace Economics. I look forward to assisting with the growth of the journal and encourage researchers working in the area of conflict and defense economics to strongly consider the journal for their work.

Great time in Ottawa

Just got back from the 10th Defence and Security Economics Workshop at Carleton University in Ottawa. As always, a number of interesting sessions and a friendly group. Great to have the chance to present my paper Conflict and the Military Expenditure-Growth Link. Appreciate the feedback from everyone!
