Welcome to my academic portfolio. I am Assistant Teaching Professor of Political Science at Drexel University, where I teach American politics and comparative democratic institutions.
My research focuses on party change and electoral reform in the United States. Some of this deals with strategic aspects of ranked-choice elections.
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, Café Bonaparte, and a congressional district office.
