I am a postdoctoral research fellow in the Center for the Study of Democratic Politics at Princeton University. In the 2016-2017 academic year, I was a postdoctoral research fellow in the Department of Political Science at Washington University in St. Louis. I received my Ph.D. in political science from the Department of Politics at the University of Virginia.
I study American political institutions, policymaking under separate powers, and the executive branch. My research examines how bureaucratic agencies interact with elected politicians. I leverage original correspondence data between agencies and members of Congress to study bureaucratic responsiveness, legislative influence, and constituent representation. In addition, I have an ongoing project on presidential power and delegation to executive agencies.
