I am an Associate Professor of Political Science at the University of Connecticut, and the Director of UConn's Humanities House. I write about politics and popular culture at The Monkey Cage, hosted by The Washington Post.

Here is some recent press coverage of my research on political leaders and popular culture.

My most recent book is Otherworldly Politics, an exploration of ideas about conflict and cooperation in science fiction and international relations theory. Here is a peek at my current book project.
