About Me

I am an associate professor in Political Science at the University of Kentucky.  My research in Comparative Politics has produced work on election boycotts, election protests, democracy promotion and democratization.  My work in American politics has focused on perceptions of election fraud, gender, and election laws.  Currently I am pursuing research projects on parliamentary brawls (yes, fights in the legislature), post-conflict elections, support for voter identification laws in the US, gender and reactions to corruption and scandal, and the community-level consequences of felon disenfranchisement in Florida and Kentucky.
