My research examines the politics of U.S. national policymaking, focusing on health policy, fiscal politics, the politics of policy reform, the welfare state, implementation, and Congress. My recent articles and media appearances can be found here.
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 & Climate Program at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace.
