I'm an Assistant Professor in the Department of Political Science at Southern Methodist University. I was previously a Postdoctoral Research Associate at The Political Theory Project at Brown University. I hold a Ph.D. in Government from Georgetown University and an M.A. in Liberal Arts from St. John's College, Annapolis.
For the 2022-23 AY, I'm a visiting research professor at the Center for Philosophy, Politics, and Economics at Brown University.
I have research interests in the history of political thought, liberalism (French & Anglo-American), political economy, suffrage, and citizenship, focusing on themes of political inclusion and exclusion and the history of 'the social question.' My work has been published or is forthcoming in History of Political Thought, Modern Intellectual History, Political Theory, Polity, The Review of Politics, and The Tocqueville Review.
My book, Democracy Tamed: French Liberalism and the Politics of Suffrage (under contract at OUP) explores French liberals' responses to the advance of democratic equality.
