About Me


I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Government at Wesleyan University. My scholarly work concerns Congress, the presidency, and American Political Development.

One area of my research explores the tensions that exist between between the modern presidency and the rule of law. Another considers Congress’s role in the promotion and enactment of civil rights initiatives. In all of my research I employ detailed historical analyses of both qualitative and quantitative data to explain political decisions and policy enactments.

I maintain this website so my finished and on-going projects are available. Please contact me if you have questions about my work.
