I am a CKF Postdoctoral Fellow in Political Science. Broadly speaking, my research centers on the politics of policy change, often with a focus on the policymaking role of the judiciary. To date, my research has been published (or is forthcoming) in the Journal of Law and CourtsPolitical CommunicationPolicy Studies Journal, and the Du Bois Review, among others. My work has been featured in a number of popular press outlets, including The Washington Post, NPR, VoxNewsweekThe New Yorker, and The Miami Herald.

Before coming to LAPA, I completed my Ph.D. at Syracuse University’s Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs (in June of 2017) and spent two years as Visiting Scholar in the Harry S Truman School of Public Affairs at the University of Missouri. Before that, I received a Bachelor’s degree in History and Teacher Education from the Missouri University of Science & Technology, and a Master’s degree in Political Science from Southern Illinois University.
