Head Shot

I am an Associate Professor of Political Science at the University of Denver. My primary academic interests are found at the intersection of American politics, law, & social movements, with a specific concentration in conservative movements and the law.

Before coming to the University of Denver I served as an Assistant Professor at John Jay College, City University of New York for six years, and I earned my PhD in Jurisprudence & Social Policy from the University of California, Berkeley. A more complete description of my teaching and research interests can be found here, on my faculty page or here, in this brief video. My CV can be found here.

Outside of work I can be found with my family around Denver, in the Rockies, or back in California…usually listening to NPR (news and music) and lamenting that I somehow now only have an iPhone camera, and not a real one.
