I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Political Science at the University of Houston. I earned my doctorate from the Department of Political Science at Indiana University in 2018. In addition to my training at Indiana University, I participated in the 2013 Summer Institute in Political Psychology at Stanford University.
My research expertise is within the field of judicial politics and covers a diverse set of topics including judicial decision-making, public attitudes towards judicial institutions, and representation within the judiciary. My research has been published in Electoral Studies, the Journal of Legal Studies, Justice System Journal, Political Research Quarterly, Politics & Gender, and Social Science Quarterly.
I teach public law courses such as Constitutional Law, Judicial Behavior, and Introduction to Law. In the past, I have taught classes on the Congress, the presidency, and state politics. In my classes, I take extra care to expose students to social science research and to explain how through social science methodologies we can better understand the world around us.
