Hello and welcome to my home page. I am an assistant professor in the Government Department at Harvard University. My current research interests center around three projects: 1) attempting to create a more instrumental view of non-voting political activity; 2) understanding how the content of -- and strategies for -- black agenda setting have changed over time; and 3) developing a conceptual framework to provide a more comprehensive understanding of bill sponsorship as an agenda setting tool. This page serves primarily as a depository for working papers representative of these interests. Once again, thanks for taking the time to visit.
