My main focus is on the study of American politics, with particular emphasis on political parties, elections, and public policy. My current research examines various aspects of party organization and behavior, focusing on the relationship between formal party organizations and informal/external party groups in elections and the development of public policy. I employ a variety of methods, including network analysis, textual analysis, and interviews.
