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. These interests span a diverse and eclectic set of fields and subfields, including Public Administration, Organizational Theory, Executive Politics, Political Economics, Legislative Politics, and Subnational Politics & Policymaking.

My current research activities investigate both the selection and the role of bureaucratic leadership in U.S. federal government agencies; the exercise of executive authority; administrative performance; the implications of shared power arrangements for democratic governance and policymaking within the administrative state; and the institutional and organizational aspects of fiscal policymaking in the realm of democratic politics.
