Welcome!

 

I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Political Science at The University of the South. My research and teaching interests include American political behavior and public opinion, gender in politics, political parties, local and urban politics, and survey research. My current research asks how party organizational strength and party leader behavior affects who runs for and holds political office. I examine whether strong parties can promote greater equality in representation for traditionally underrepresented groups, particularly women.

Before coming to Sewanee in 2011, I earned my PhD from the Department of Politics at Princeton University in 2010. I earned my Bachelorís degree in Political Science and Educational Studies from Vanderbilt University in 2004.
