Assistant Professor of Politics
39 Corwin Hall
I am an assistant professor in the Department of Politics at Princeton University . My main research area is judicial politics, but I have broad interests in the study of American politics. My current research analyzes the dynamics of collegial decision making on three-judge panels of the U.S. Courts of Appeals, with a particular focus on how the judicial hierarchy interacts with collegiality to influence individual judicial voting. I am also working on a series of papers that examine the role race and gender play on three-judge panels of the Courts of Appeals I have also written several papers examining the relationship between public opinion and the Supreme Court, with a focus on senatorial voting in Supreme Court nominations .
