BS, Political Science from Indiana State University 


My primary area of research is American politics, with an emphasis on Congress. I am currently interested in understanding how congressional staffers supplement congressional capacity to draft legislation and conduct oversight. I also have substantive interests in understanding the contours of political careers of members of Congress.
