I am a graduate student in the Department of Political Science at Emory University. My research focuses on lobbying, Congress and government personnel. I am particularly interested in congressional staff, the revolving door, and the influence of private interests in public policy. I have also written about presidential approval polling and the politicization of television news.

Prior to coming to Emory, I spent three years in Washington DC, first working on Capitol Hill, then as a nonprofit lobbyist, and finally in online advocacy for nonprofit organizations.
