John Jay Email


I am Professor and Chair of Political Science at John Jay College of Criminal Justice, a senior college of the City University of New York. I earned my Ph.D. from Stony Brook University in 2007.


My research examines American politics and I have published work on electoral politics, the pork barrel, political behavior, and all three branches of the federal government.

In addition to my academic work, I have consulted on elections in Canada and the United Kingdom.

Actually, it has mattered more lately than it has in the past. Click the links to find out why!
