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 and am working with scholars in many other countries now to replicate the project in Canada, Europe, and elsewhere (www.comparativeagendas.info). I recently published a book on US capital punishment and have another forthcoming in 2018 on racial disparities in traffic stops.
