Political Science at Saint Louis University. I received my Ph.D. in Political Science from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2011. My research agenda focuses on the role of gender, race, and culture in determining the political landscape of statewide elections. My dissertation, Understanding Female Candidates and Campaigns for Governor, was awarded the Christopher Z. Mooney Award for the best dissertation in the area of State Politics by the American Political Science Association. I teach courses on state and local politics, gender and politics, urban politics, economic development, and research methods.
