My research and teaching interests are located within American politics and political methodology, with particular specializations in public policy, race and politics, state and local politics, political inequality, and political behavior. 

My research has been published in State Politics and Policy QuarterlyJournal of Health Politics, Policy, and Law, and Analyses of Social Issues and Public Policy
