My research focuses on American Political Institutions with a particular emphasis on the intersection between the federal judiciary and other political actors and bodies. I have worked on projects focusing on judicial appointments, whether Supreme Court justices respond to public opinion, congressional overrides of Supreme Court decisions, how the Supreme Court responds to congressional court-curbing bills, and Supreme Court certiorari decisions. Copies of my working papers are available upon request.
