I am an Assistant Professor in the department of Political Science and International Relations at Drew University, in Madison, New Jersey, where I primarily teach a range of courses that focus on American politics and constitutional law, political theory, and gender. I am also an affiliate faculty member of the Women and Gender Studies department.

I study the development of right-wing movements in the United States, with a particular focus on the Christian Right. I am interested in understanding the proactive and forward-looking agendas of right-wing movements to identify better how these movements pose a threat to liberal democratic institutions and the provision of rights to historically underrepresented and oppressed groups. My research and teaching are both informed by a commitment to challenging supremacism, and I teach a range of courses that examine how structural inequalities in political institutions, law, and society are produced, maintained, and challenged.

In addition to being a fellow at the Far-Right Analysis Network (FRAN), I am a co-founder of and fellow at the Institute for Research on Male Supremacism. I co-edited Male Supremacism in the United States: From Patriarchal Traditionalism to Misogynistic Incels and the Alt-Right, and my book Prefiguring the Past: Conservative Catholic and Protestant Coalition Building on the Right (1965-1985) is forthcoming from the University Press of Kansas.

Before coming to Drew University, I was an assistant professor at Centre College in Kentucky and a visiting assistant professor at Rollins College in Central Florida. Originally from California, I attended the University of California, Santa Cruz, for my undergraduate education. I received my M.A. and Ph.D. in Politics from the New School for Social Research in New York City in 2018.
