Hello, and welcome to my page.  I’m a political scientist at the University of North Texas. Most of my research explores the relationship between religion and legislative policymaking. Focusing on Ireland and the United States, I also study clergy as political elites.  Of course, my teaching interests overlap with my research interests. Beyond American and Texas Government, I most frequently offer courses on the U.S. Congress and religion and politics.

I’m also the Graduate Advisor in my department. Interested in grad school in political science at UNT? Please be in touch.
