My research interests concern the fields of public policy, American politics, and research methodology. My primary area of research is in the field of public policy with a particular interest in policy implementation and education policy reforms. I am actively engaged in academic, applied, and pedagogical research traditions and have gained valuable training in designing and implementing projects of interest throughout my academic career.
