As the founding Director of CTG, from 1993-2007, she led the Center to international prominence in the field of digital government research.

Her previous international work included US representation in an EC-funded project, eGovRTD2020, which developed a future research agenda for egovernment, and a US-Quebec research partnership to study new models of collaboration for delivering government services in North America and Europe.
