Hello, and welcome to my web site! I am a Professor in the Department of Political Science at Michigan State University. I am also a Research Scientist at the University of Michigan and Director of the Inter-University Consortium for Political and Social Research (ICPSR) Summer Program in Quantitative Methods of Social Research. As a political scientist, my areas of interest include mass political behavior (public opinion and voting behavior) and quantitative methodology (measurement theory, scaling methods, and statistical graphics).
As you can see, this site's features are .... well ... very "basic." In fact, everything is still under construction. So, please check back soon for a (hopefully) more polished and complete version! Until then, use the links below to see my vita, information about my research, teaching, and some of the things I do for fun. If you don't find the materials you need, just drop me an e-mail message. And, more generally, feedback about this site is always welcome!
