About Me

I am an assistant professor of Political Science at Illinois State University. I received my Ph.D. from Florida State University in May 2014. My research interests are direct democracy, elections, and interest group behavior.

I teach undergraduate courses in Congress, Political Parties, Policy Analysis, Direct Democracy in the U.S., and Campaign Politics.

I’m also interested in data automation – including customized web scraping and text analysis.
