I recently completed my Ph.D. in political science at the University of Georgia with a major field in American government and a minor in political methodology. My research focuses on American political institutions. More specifically, I am interested in questions relating to judicial politics, such as judicial decision-making at the federal and state level, interest group activity in the judiciary, judicial selection, constitutional law, and separation of powers. Additionally, I teach a wide variety of courses on American politics.
Prior to coming to the University of Georgia, I lived in Washington D.C. and worked for the Department of Defense as a budget and program analyst.
