I am an Associate Professor of Political Science at Oklahoma State University. I received my Ph.D. from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2016.

I teach and research topics in American political institutions, public policy processes, and methodology. I seek to answer how unequal representation in American state legislatures affects the content, efficacy, and diffusion of public policies and the distribution of economic resources in the United States.

I am passionate about access to quality civic education in the United States. Professor Eve Ringsmuth and I have an active research agenda to better understand the modalities and pedagogies that promote student learning about politics, government, and democracy.

My research has been published in State Politics & Policy Quarterly, Journal of Public Policy, Political Research QuarterlyAdministration & Society, Policy & Politics, American Politics ResearchInterest Groups & Advocacy, Journal of Political Science Education, and Economic Development Quarterly.
