B.S., Political Science from Black Hills State University
My research focuses on the politics of administration. Specifically, I study the role of civil servants and government agencies in ensuring bureaucratic accountability. I am also interested in appointee politics with a particular focus on the consequences of politicization for bureaucratic and agency behavior.
