Welcome! I am a postdoctoral fellow at the Institute for Advanced Study in Toulouse, at Universitè Toulouse 1 Capitole, and I will be starting a postdoctoral research fellowship at Vanderbilt University in 2016. My research interests lie at the meeting place of political behavior and political institutions. I am engaged in a major project to incorporate the Five Factor Model of personality into the study of elected officials. I am also working on projects to examine how, if at all, politicians pursue their office and policy objectives by maintaining personal grassroots lobbying organizations between elections.
