I am currently a Ph.D candidate in the Department of Political Science at Stony Brook University and am currently on the job market. My research falls into the broad fields of American Politics and Political Methodology. My more specific sub-field interests include judicial politics, with an emphasis on the United States Supreme Court. I also have an interest in and have presented and/or published research in Minority Politics (including American Indian Politics), State and Local Politics, the American Presidency, and Time Series Methodology. My dissertation examines how Supreme Court decision making is influenced at multiple levels by exogenous factors (mainly the US economy).

My research page includes a list of my publications as well as my CV. My teaching page lists the courses that I have taught and the courses I have been a Teaching Assistant for.
