Greetings. Welcome to my website. I am a Ph.D. candidate in political science at the University of Missouri, Columbia. I study mostly American politics, with a focus on comparative state institutions and behavior. I have a particular interest in how institutional variation across state legislatures shapes legislative behavior in the chamber. Additionally, I do work on subnational economic voting as well as the influence of local factors on economic evaluations and perceptions. To learn more about my research and to access replication materials please check out my Research page.
