My research examines the politics of American national policymaking, focusing on healthcare, fiscal politics, policy reform, implementation, and Congress.
My essays have appeared in Perspectives on Politics, Political Science Quarterly, Governance, P.S., Policy Sciences, Health Affairs, Journal of Health Politics, Policy & Law, Social Service Review, and in many edited volumes.
I teach courses on policy analysis, health politics and policy, leadership and public management, the politics of policy-making, Congress, bureaucracy, and the U.S. welfare state. I received the Jefferson Scholars Foundation Award for Excellence in Teaching at UVA.
My wife Deborah Gordon is Director of the Energy and Climate Program at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace.
