My primary research interest is executive politics in the United States, specifically the unilateral presidency and its effect on social and political equality as well as the strength of democratic institutions. I also conduct research on the ways that domestic politics and foreign affairs interact. Methodologically, I'm interested in finding new ways to incorporate text analysis into this work alongside more conventional quantitative and qualitative approaches.
