Welcome to my website! I am a visiting assistant professor in the Department of Government and International Affairs at Augustana University in Sioux Falls, SD. My main area of study is American politics, with a focus on legislative careers. In particular, I am interested in understanding the ways in which the career trajectories of Democrats and Republicans differ. In addition, I have an interest in understanding partisan differences in political strategy.
