I'm a Professor of Political Science at Indiana University - Bloomington. My research focuses on legislative institutions and representation, both at the national and state level in the US and throughout the world. Other current projects include an analysis of factors affecting local policies regarding undocumented individuals and an analysis of research outcomes onboard the International Space Station.
At IU I teach undergraduate classes in American Politics (including Congress, Presidency, and Introduction to America Government), Statistics, and Game Theory, and and graduate classes in Legislative Politics, American Institutions, and Game Theory. I've also coauthored a textbook, American Politics Today.
I've been a PI or co-PI on six National Science Foundation Grants (including two Dissertation Improvement Grants), a grant from the National Council for Eurasian and Eastern European Research, and various internal university grants. I've also been a member of the NSF Political Science Panel and am currently on the Editorial Board of American Journal of Political Science.
