Biographical Sketch

I am the Colonel William J. Walsh Professor of American Government in the Department of Government and the McCourt School of Public Policy at Georgetown University. 

 

I am a co-author with Forrest Maltzman of The Constrained Court: Law, Politics and the Decisions Justices Make from Princeton University Press.

·         Review

·         Summary

 

I am also the author of two statistics books.  The goal of these books is to get to interesting and useful statistical material as quickly as possible.  To be useful, we focus on endogeneity (“correlation is not causation”) and to be interesting we analyze real data sets with multivariate OLS in the first semester.

·         Real Stats: Using Econometrics for Political Science and Public Policy

·         Real Econometrics: Using Econometrics for Political Science and Public Policy

The books are quite similar.  Real Stats focuses on political and policy examples.  Real Econometrics focuses on economic and policy examples.

 

 

I teach and conduct research on American politics and political economy.  My work covering trade, Congress, election law and the Supreme Court, methodology and inter-state policy competition has been published in the American Political Science Review, the American Journal of Political Science, the Journal of Politics, World Politics, the Journal of Law, Economics and Organization and elsewhere.

 

Areas of specialization: Congress, Supreme Court, separation of powers, federalism, elections, statistics, formal models

Research interests:  Campaign finance, relation of Supreme Court to Congress and the Executive, interstate competition on social policy

Education: B.A., University of Notre Dame; M.A. (Political Science), M.A.(Economics), Ph.D., Stanford University.

 

As a former Monbusho Scholar at the Graduate Institute for Policy Studies (then at Saitama University) in Japan, I am conversational in Japanese and interested in Japanese politics.
