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 often examines how bureaucratic agencies interact with elected politicians, and has appeared in Political Science Research and Methods, the Journal of Law, Economics, and Organization, the Journal of Theoretical Politics, and Legislative Studies Quarterly. I have ongoing projects on unilateral presidential action, and other papers in which I leverage original correspondence data between agencies and members of Congress to study bureaucratic responsiveness, legislative influence, and constituent representation.
Please email me if you have questions about my work.
