Welcome to my portfolio. I am Assistant Teaching Professor of Political Science at Drexel University, where I teach political institutions and research methods.
My research focuses on party change and electoral reform in American politics. Some of this deals with strategic aspects of "ranked choice" elections. My papers have appeared in Politics and Policy, JEPOP, The Journal of Politics (review essay), SAGE Methods Cases, Representation, Electoral Studies, and American Politics Research. I am both excited and worried about current efforts to reform American democracy.
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.
