Bio: 

As a student of American politics,  my primary research interest is political parties.  I am particularly interested in how presidents relate to the party organization, and the effects of the culture war on party coalitions.

Interests:

My dissertation explores how presidents use rhetoric for the purpose of party-building.  I study presidential appeals to established members of the president's coalition, as well as attempts to woo new groups to the party coalition.
