I am an Associate Professor at the Department of Political Science at the University of Houston.

My CV is here.

The major parts of my research agenda are linked above. You can find my Google Scholar citations here, and my SSRN page here (with my working papers).

I occasionally blog about issues of the day as they touch upon my research here. Or you can follow me on Twitter.

Visit the American Legislatures website, which has my state legislative ideology data for all 50 states–at the state and individual legislator level–for 1993-2016. A new data release was posted on May 2018, extending and cleaning the data substantially.
