I teach political theory and American politics at Iona College. My research interests lie primarily in American political thought. I have written articles and reviews for several publications, including Americana, Anamnesis, Kritike, The Review of Politics, State Politics and Policy Quarterly, ZNet, and The Boston Globe. I am also the author of two books, Pragmatic Conservatism: Edmund Burke and His American Heirs (2016) and American Pragmatism and Democratic Faith (2008).
I hold a B.A. in History from the University of Vermont (1993), a M.P.P. from Georgetown University (1996), and a Ph.D. in Political Science from the University of Massachusetts (2006).
