Place Kitten


Hello! I graduated with my Ph.D. in political science from the University of Maryland–College Park. Currently, I’m a Lecturer in Political Science at the University of Georgia.


I specialize in political behavior, public opinion, aging politics and policy, religion and politics, and civic engagement.

Current research interests center on elite religious communication and political learning and civic engagement in the classroom.

I have also published in the areas of political geography and academic journal transparency.

When I am not teaching, reading, and writing, I enjoy spending time with my husband and kids, eating and playing all over Athens.
