My research agenda sits at the intersection of Public Administration, Development Administration, Global Governance and International Organizations. Research topics include International Organizations; Environmental Governance; Public Service Motivation; Corruption / Ethics; Collaborative Governance; Multilevel Governance; Stakeholder Theory; Bureaucratic Politics; Non-Profit Organizations; Global Civil Society; and the Intellectual History of Comparative and Development Administration. My dissertation, “The World Bank's Public Sector Management and Governance Agenda: Actors, Tensions and Policy Change (1983-2007)” explained policy change within the Bank’s most frequently-prescribed sector: public sector management and governance. Two Jamaica-focused research projects include: (1) explaining limited collaboration between Jamaican NGOs and the state; and (2) public service motivation investigations. I have worked in multiple countries including Jamaica, Peru, Zambia, Kenya, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, and the United States.
