Welcome to my personal homepage. I am an associate professor in the Department of Public Administration in the School of Public and Global Affairs at Northern Illinois University, and a faculty associate with the Institute for the Study of the Environment, Sustainability and Energy. I currently chair ASPA's Section on Intergovernmental Administration and Management. My research investigates local governance, collaborative public management, and intergovernmental relations. I write about municipal service delivery, urban sustainability, and other topics related to local governance. The links above provide information about my teaching and research. You can also visit my profile at Google Scholar to find a list of my publications.
My book Collaborative Strategies for Sustainable Cities: Economy, Environment and Community in Baltimore documents how urban sustainability is defined in Baltimore and how community actors work to implement local sustainability goals.
