Teaching Assistant
I created the Political Science Data Group and Web Site. On this page, you'll find links to some of my publications, replication datasets, and some (possibly outdated) information about my works in progress. I live in Orlando, Florida and get to teach, reseach, and write for a living. I work full-time at UCF and part-time at UGA. I'm best known for co-authoring Political Analysis textbooks with Philip H. Pollock for CQ Press/Sage. I like working on this web site and hope you enjoy visiting it!
