B.S., Political Science from Black Hills State University
My research interests lie at the intersection of administrative politics, public policy, and human resources. I am currently working on projects that consider how bureaucracies and elected officials identify and monitor problems that arise during the implementation of public policies, the relationship between political appointees and civil servants’ careers, and the implementation of Social Security Disability.
