American Politics, Public Law: Judicial Politics and Research Methodology
I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Political Science at Georgia State University specializing in judicial politics. My research primarily focuses on the evolution of legal policy over time. This involves examining how legal policy is formulated, the role of courts in guiding the development of legal policy over time, and the impact of legal policy on the everyday lives of individuals.
At Georgia State, I teach courses at the graduate and undergraduate level on constitutional law, judicial process, and research methods. I received my Ph.D. from the University of South Carolina and my M.A. and B.A. from the University of Kentucky.
