He received a Ph.D. and M.A. in American Politics with a minor in Public Policy from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He has a B.A. in political science from the University of Maryland at College Park.

His research agenda focuses on policy change, asking why some policies persist – remaining the status quo for decades – while others undergo frequent adjustments. To this end, his research measures the capacity of institutions to attend to political information and then tracks the allocation of that attention across issues: what issues receive attention, for how long, and to what effect. He also studies criminal justice with a particular focus on racial patterns in police traffic stops.
