My general teaching focus is American politics and research methods.  I routinely teach several classes in the Department of Political Science (the links take you to the most recent syllabus):
Introduction to Empirical Research (POLS 301)

State and Local Government (POLS 310)

Campaigns and Elections (POLS 318)

Congress (POLS 360)

American Political Institutions (POLS 560)

I also advise undergraduate research, honors projects and theses.  If you have questions about the courses or research opportunities, please contact me at
