I am an Assistant Professor of Political Science in the School of American and Global Studies at South Dakota State University. I also serve as the Political Science Internship Coordinator, Legal Studies Coordinator, and Pre-Law Society Advisor.
I received my PhD in Political Science from Kent State University in August 2016 and served as a 2015-2016 American Political Science Association Congressional Fellow. My fellowship placement was as a legislative assistant for Representative Daniel Lipinski (D-IL-3). I covered education, agriculture, government operations, campaign finance reform, voting rights, and Native American policy. I also worked with the Science, Space, and Technology Committee and the STEM Education Caucus.
