My main research interest is the American Presidency.  I have written academic journal articles and presented academic conference papers on the presidential role in leadership; White House crisis management; agenda setting and public policy making; and the political use of shared values, media, rhetoric and symbol. Other research interests are Congress, Interest Groups and Political Parties and Elections. My teaching goal is to assist the student in developing critical thinking, analysis and writing skills and to promote an intellectual classroom and campus environment.
