My research focuses on American legal history during the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, with a focus on how the politics of race and gender have shaped the American political and legal system. My current research examines the appointments of women for leadership positions in the federal civil service after the Civil War, and how they used their positions as an instrument of political power and as an agent of change for women’s rights in the workforce. My other research interests include the presidency, the American welfare state, and American political development.
