Beginning Fall 2016, I will be joining the Department of Political Science at UMass-Amherst as an assistant professor of legal studies.
I am currently an assistant professor of political science at the University of Mississippi. I received my Ph.D. in political science from Penn State University. Broadly, I am interested in the study of courts and public policy, the separation of powers, judicial behavior, agenda-setting, and political methodology.
