I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Political Science at Arkansas State University.

My research interests focus on the intersection between economic development, representation, and comparative public policy.

My book project is an extension of my dissertation and investigates how poverty and income inequality affect democratic politics, focusing on their consequences for security policy.

I am also producing research in the areas of urban politics, gender and racial politics, coalition governments, and political methodology.
