My research evaluates some of the key institutional components under term limits, by assessing if those components have changed or adjusted with time. This research project takes an in-depth look at career ambition, legislative leadership, committee work, and even the executive branch. My work pushes the current understanding of state legislatures by taking a comparative approach. In doing so, my goal is to explore the variation that exists among legislative institutions.
When I am not studying legislatures I enjoy visiting them, this is the Nebraska State Capitol.
