Brief biography

I teach courses on American government as well as research methods. I am a political commentator and have been quoted in local, statewide, national, and international news media outlets. My research focuses on American political institutions (especially Congress), elections, political communication, and the scholarship of teaching and learning.

Most of all, I value the opportunity to work with students. I encourage students who are interested in American government and politics to reach out to me so I can learn more about their interests. I often work with students on research, and I also enjoy helping students figure out how they can translate their interests into a rewarding career.
