B.A., Politics from Saint Vincent College
M.A., Political Science from Northern Illinois University
Emphasis in Political Theory
I study representation and partisanship in American political thought. My primary focus is on party identification and the intersection of religion and politics. More specifically, I am interested in the cultural and political factors which influence the way individuals participate in politics and how these factors have changed over the course of American political development. My current work focuses on the relationship between religion and party identification.
