Since 2008 I have been a Professor of Political Science at the University of South Carolina. Currently, I serve as Department Chair. My areas of expertise include Law and Judicial Politics, with an emphasis on U.S. Constitutional Law, strategic decision making among federal judges, and comparative rule of law.
From 2013-2017, I directed the Carolina Leadership Initiative. Currently, I serve as Director of Leadership Studies for the UofSC. Part of these responsibilities involve administering a Minor in Leadership Studies; an interdisciplinary approach to leadership development that integrates with all majors across the university.
I provide a variety of leadership and motivational workshops aimed at individuals in every sector. These include leadership development presentations and workshops on conflict resolution, public speaking, change management, and strategic planning.
