I am a Ph.D. Student in Political Science at the University of Georgia with emphases in American Politics and Methodology. I received my M.A. and B.A. in political science from the University of Southern Mississippi in 2008 and 2004. At the University of Georgia, I am a Research Assistant for Dr. Keith T. Poole.
My primary research interests broadly encompass American politics and political behavior; particularly polarization and the culture war thesis, politics and religion, and campaign strategy. I have also conducted limited research on the linkage between bioethics and political theory.
