Assistant Professor of Government, on leave for the fall 2022 semester

My research and teaching interests focus on American politics and institutions more generally. Specifically, I examine multiple areas of judicial politics -- including strategic behavior, the separation of powers, and decision-making at the U.S. Supreme Court. In short, I investigate what the Supreme Court does and why its justices behave the way they do. To this end, I also teach courses that approach these questions: the Constitutional Law sequence, Judicial Politics, The Supreme Court and Social Change, and a Supreme Court Simulation.
