I am an American politics scholar focusing on gender and politics, interest groups, intersectionality, state politics, and political methodology. Some questions I explore in my research include: What role do interest groups play in the political process? How do interest groups represent minority groups in U.S. politics? Do women candidates for governor help or hurt women running in state legislative races? How do interest groups use social media to communicate their policy preferences?
