Welcome to my portfolio. I am Assistant Teaching Professor of Political Science at Drexel University. My research is on political parties and the politics of election reform in the United States. This includes several pieces on ranked-choice voting, a research note on party realignment, and a book project on multiparty reform during the Progressive Era. A recent review essay distills my thinking on these issues.
At Drexel, I teach courses in American politics, political institutions, and research methods. I also taught for Georgetown University and James Madison University's DC program.
Georgetown University granted my Ph.D. in July 2017. I was a Research Fellow at the Democracy Fund for the 2017-8 academic year. Before graduate school, I worked at the International Foundation for Electoral Systems, the Campaign Finance Institute, FairVote, two restaurants, and a congressional district office.
