I am an assistant professor in the Programs of Public Affairs at the University of Utah's Department of Political Science and affiliated faculty with the University's Global Change and Sustainability Center. I was named an ASPA Founders' Fellow in 2017 and the 2015 NASPAA Staats Emerging Scholar.
My research examines public policy and administration across a range of contexts, from organic food regulation in the U.S., to child welfare services, and climbers' advocacy and resource stewardship. I teach classes in public policy, policy analysis, research design, and the intersection of governance and the economy.
More on both my research and teaching can be found throughout this website and the links below. For an overview of my academic record, see my C.V.
