About Me

My work is in American political development (APD) and constitutional theory. Specifically, I focus on the normative basis and historical construction of institutional authority in the American constitutional system. 

I received my PhD in Government from the University of Texas at Austin in 2020.

Before coming to the University of Missouri, I taught at the University of Colorado - Colorado Springs and Williams College.

I am on the Executive Board of the American Political Thought APSA Section, and I am serving as a Division Chair for American Political Thought at the 2024 APSA Conference.

I am also on the Executive Board of the Alumni Association of Saint George's School (Spokane, WA), where I graduated in 2011.
