My research interests transcend the intersection between law and politics.  I am primarily interested in examining how judges influence public policy through their interactions with the other branches of government.  I am currently working on revising my dissertation into book form.  The project looks at how the interaction between state legislators, justices, and the broader political environment has influenced the tort reform movement.

Works in Progress:

Torts and Courts: The Inter-Branch Struggle over Tort Reform.

Permanent Injunctions? Analyzing Appellate Court Review of Lower Court Injunction Orders.

Does Law Science Matter? The Use of Social Scientific Data before the Supreme Court.
