Hello and thanks for stopping by!

I am an Assistant Professor of Government at Wesleyan University in Middletown, CT and an Affiliated Scholar of the American Bar Foundation.

I’m interested in how institutions structure individual behavior.  My current work focuses the formal and informal interactions between individuals working within the American separation of powers system. 

I’m also studying how people come to identify certain institutions as appropriate places to solve their civil legal problems, and how they are affected by their interactions with these institutions.  If you're interested in access to justice scholarship, please keep an eye out for more information about activities related to an NSF-funded Early Career Workshop that I developed with Rebecca Sandefur and David Udell.
