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 and bureaucracies affects the content, efficacy, and diffusion of public policies and the distribution of political and economic power 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.
