TEACHING

I teach a course on the politics behind public policy in the United States. The course is a bedrock course for political science and public policy students alike, and it is one of the most widely taken courses in political science at Ohio State. In the past I served as a teaching assistant for a variety of courses in American politics, from an introductory course in American politics to the U.S. Congress to the policy process.

MEDIA

I have taken my passion for political science from the academy to the front lines outside of academia, from the op-ed pages to YouTube to the internet.
