Research Interests

I research American political institutions with a focus on two general questions of interest: how the design of regulation influences policy outcomes; and how institutional characteristics condition the spread or diffusion of policy. I primarily study the U.S. states with an emphasis on energy and economic policy, and my work heavily uses spatial econometric modeling.
