I am an assistant professor of Political Science at San Francisco State University. I received my Ph.D. in Government from the University of Texas at Austin, where I was a Graduate Research Fellow and the former Project Manager of the U.S. Policy Agendas Project, a member of the Comparative Agendas Project network.

My areas of specialization include public policy and American politics with an emphasis on agenda-setting, the presidency, and information processing.  My previous research has been published in Policy Studies Journal.

My current work, “Prioritizer-in-Chief: The Role of the President in the Policy Process from Reagan to Obama,” examines what policy areas and strategies presidents use to make policy and considers how presidents make trade-0ffs in attention and strategy.
