I am an assistant professor in the Government Department at St. Lawrence University. I spent the 2015-2016 school year as a visiting assistant professor at Skidmore College. I received my Ph.D. from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2015.
My research interests are in judicial politics, specifically nomination and confirmation politics at the lower federal court levels. I am also interested in institutional politics more broadly, including the American presidency. I have extensive training in mass political behavior and secondary interests in political communication and methodology.
