I am the Alumni Foundation Distinguished Professor of Public Administration in the Department of Public Administration and Policy at the University of Georgia.

As a political scientist, my core research interests center on governance, accountability, and representation in the United States. Much of my research focuses on topics pertaining to public administration & bureaucracy, executive authority, fiscal policymaking and governance, and organizational theory applied to better understand the functioning of government institutions (both elected and unelected). My current research activities investigate the role of bureaucratic leadership in U.S. federal government agencies; the exercise of executive authority; the implications of shared power arrangements for democratic governance and policymaking within the administrative state; and behavioral decision-making in the realm of both democratic politics and government policymaking.
