I joined the faculty in 1999 holding a Ph.D. from Washington University in St. Louis and regularly teach courses in American politics outside of the governmental institutions. I specializes in American public opinion and political behavior, with particular interests in the political influence of religion and the nature of social network influence. Uniting these two elements is a concern for the role of organizations in packaging social interaction and mandating exposure to information. My current research investigates, among other things, gender and social networks, the social psychology of religious influence, and deliberative norms in American religion.
