I work on agenda-setting, policymaking processes, how issues are redefined through public debate, and I do so in the US national system and increasingly with a comparative focus. I co-direct, with Bryan Jones, the Policy Agendas Project (www.policyagendas.org) and am working with scholars in many other countries now to replicate the project in Canada, Europe, elsewhere, and for the state government of Pennsylvania (www.comparativeagendas.info).
