Teaching


My teaching interests span public policy, organizations and interest groups, agenda-setting, American government and political institutions, research design and methods, and computational analysis. In 2019, I received the UTA President’s Award for Excellence in Teaching (Untenured).

Courses taught at the University of Texas at Arlington:

  • Interest Groups and Political Advocacy
  • Research Methods and Political Analysis (graduate cross-listed)
  • Political Science Research Lab *2017 class pictured above*
  • Organized Interests in America: Advocacy and Influence (graduate)
  • Government of the United States  
  • Public Policy Analysis (graduate)
  • Introduction to Public Policy Analysis
  • Health Politics & Advocacy (co-taught with Daniel Sledge)

I also advise a number of undergraduate students (through the Honors College, McNair Scholars Program, and the Undergraduate Research Opportunity Program) and mentor MA students as a thesis committee member.
