ProfileI am an Associate Professor in the Political Science Department. I teach courses in American politics and research methods, including courses on the U.S. Congress and elections. My primary expertise is in American political institutions, with a particular focus on the U.S. Congress. I am the author of articles appearing in Journal of Politics, Political Research Quarterly, Social Science Quarterly, Political Behavior, Presidential Studies Quarterly, and American Review of Politics. I have earned one national award: the Craig L. Brians Award for Excellence in Undergraduate Research Mentorship (awarded by the Political Science Education section of the American Political Science Association). I have also received two university-wide awards: the Frank A. Burtner Award for Excellence in Advising and the Douglas W. Bradbury Award for outstanding contributions to the Calhoun Honors College. In 2013-14, I served as a Congressional Fellow through the American Political Science Association, where I worked on the staff of a United States Senator.
My research focuses on the interaction between the U.S. Congress and other political actors. I also examine how Congress interacts with the public, including studies of representation, voter turnout, and the use of social media in elections.
