Kristin Good is an Associate Professor of political science at Dalhousie University. She received her B.A. (Hons) and Master's degrees from the University of Manitoba and her Ph.D. in political science from the University of Toronto in 2006.

Good's current research concerns the role of municipalities in ethno-cultural relations in Canada. As a Ph.D. candidate at the University of Toronto in 2004, she was awarded the American Political Science Association's Byran O. Jackson Award for her dissertation research on this subject. In 2005 the Urban Affairs Association named Good their "Emerging Scholar" for her research and commitment to the study of urban politics. Her work has been published by the Centre for Urban and Community Studies (Research paper #199) and in a special issue of Policy Studies (2005). She is currently working on a book manuscript that is based on her Ph.D. dissertation that compares municipal responses to high levels of immigration of eight municipalities in the Greater Toronto Area and the Greater Vancouver Regional District.
