My research specialty is modern U.S. politics, particularly the institutions and policies central to modern American Political Development (APD), especially the ways in which these broker and illustrate the practice of power.

My most recent book addresses these interests through an examination of the federal government’s prosecution of the modern drug war.

In all my work, I draw attention to the ways in which immediate political choices shape the character and mission of American government.
