My field is Public Policy. My research interest revolves around the policymaking process, especially in the U.S. House of Representatives. I am particularly interested in the role that legislative staff (both personal staff and committee staff) play in the policymaking process. I have consulted with various state legislatures regarding application of the BRAC process to education policy. I have also worked in comparative higher education policy vis a vis the optimal structure for public systems including technical colleges, community colleges, baccalaureate/liberal arts institutions, master's-level teaching institutions, and doctoral-level research institutions. I have taught at all levels of public higher education and I have worked in accreditation support, assessment, curriculum planning, institutional research, professional development, program evaluation, regulatory compliance, and strategic planning.
