Areas of Expertise

I am interested in campaigns and elections, political parties, and the U.S. Congress.  My research looks at the role of political parties in congressional primary elections, and explores how the actions of candidates, parties, and interest groups affect the decisions of citizens to become involved in the political process in the United States.
