My overall research question is:
- How can political accountability and accurate representation be optimized in electoral system design?
My research interests include:
- Electoral system design and reform.
- Reducing party-system fragmentation in list electoral systems.
- Mitigating distortion in single-seat-district electoral systems.
I have a B.A. in political science and a master’s education in public affairs from the University of Oregon, plus a paralegal certificate.
Originally from Ann Arbor, Michigan, I moved to Eugene, Oregon in 1990.
