Welcome to my homepage.
My research is primarily in the fields of comparative politics, political theory, and American politics. My work in comparative politics – including my dissertation and subsequent chapter iterations – focus on how political institutions (especially electoral systems and coalition agreements) affect legislative consensus in national parliaments. My main interest in political theory concerns the relationship between anarchism and comparative political institutions, a topic central to a recent pair of Theory in Action publications. In “States as Instruments of Anarchism” I make the connection between anarchism and comparative politics, and apply the argument to the United States in “Second American Revolution.” I am currently developing this project into a book-length manuscript as well. As a postdoctoral research associate, my research has focused on how early voting and direct democracy affect voter participation in the State of Florida. At this website, visitors can download my dissertation, some recent research, as well as my latest curriculum vitae. I also have a new blog at http://www.multidimensionalpolitics.com and can be followed on twitter at poliscibri.
