I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Government at Wesleyan University. My scholarly work concerns Congress, the presidency, and American Political Development.
I am the co-author, with Jeffery A. Jenkins, of Congress and the First Civil Rights Era, 1861-1918 (University of Chicago Press, May 2021). My published work has also appeared in Studies in American Political Development, The Journal of Law, Economics & Organization, and Law and History Review.
I teach courses on the Presidency, the National Security State, American Political Thought, and American Political Development.
I maintain this website so my finished and on-going projects are available. Please contact me if you have questions about my work.
