Assistant Professor of Political Science
I am an assistant professor in the Department of Political Science at Loyola University Chicago. I received my Ph.D. in Political Science from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2017.
My research examines the occupational backgrounds of public officials, representation and policymaking in state legislatures and Congress, and how college-educated Americans engage in politics. My work has appeared in a number of peer-reviewed journals including the American Political Science Review, the Journal of Politics, and Political Behavior. The section below lists my publications and working papers, and includes links to article texts and summaries, media links, and replication data.
