My parents were both teachers, so education is more or less the family business. At Northwestern, my courses in political science are closely engaged with contemporary political questions central to the study of race, urban politics, American political development, social science methodology, and civic engagement. It’s been my good fortune to work closely with mentors who embody the ideal of the scholar-teacher, and to have outstanding students here at Northwestern. I have also worked as a high school teacher, an experience that left a lasting impression on me and on my teaching style, but it’s nice not to grade homework every day.

In the upcoming year (2019-20), I will be teaching:

Political Science 220: Introduction to American Politics (Undergraduate Lecture, Fall 2019)

Political Science 322: Ideas and Institutions in Urban Politics (Undergraduate Lecture, Fall 2019)
