Research Interests

While political science is a broad field of interest, the fields of political campaigns and the role of gender in politics are perhaps of great research interest.  While much of political science has focused on the quantitative aspects of research, the people that make the choices both in how to run and for whom to vote are intriguing research areas.  The beauty of political science is that there is a variety of possibilities that allows one to research a variety of interests and evolve over time.
