I am currently working on some research on the economic effects of degree production by universities at the state level with Jisun Youm. I completed an edited volume on Kentucky politics in 2014. I hope to do a second edition of that book in the coming years. I am currently examining the role of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission in managing national markets for electric power. I have also done some research on the preemption doctrine and executive-led challenges to state policy. I am also working on an edited volume on local government administration in small towns and rural areas with Michael Hail.
