My dissertation research explores the evolution of the Democratic and Republican parties over the past several decades by investigating the causes of party polarization in state legislatures during that period, using both statistical and case study analysis. My other research projects examine elections and the internal politics of Congress, and I would be interested in supervising theses that touch on any of those areas, as well as on American politics more broadly. I very much enjoyed my experience as a TF for Gov 30 (American Government: A New Perspective) during the past two years and would welcome the opportunity to provide guidance and support for undergraduate students in the Government Department writing a senior thesis.
