I am an Associate Professor of Law and Political Science at Washington University in St. Louis.  I am also an affiliate faculty member of the John C. Danforth Center on Religion and Politics.

I teach a first-year criminal law course, an upper-level law and religion course, and various other classes on the First Amendment, law and philosophy, and religion and politics.

My scholarship focuses on the First Amendment freedoms of speech, assembly, and religion, and related issues of political and legal theory.

My book, Liberty’s Refuge: The Forgotten Freedom of Assembly, is published by Yale University Press.

I am spending the 2014-2015 academic year as a Visiting Faculty Fellow at the Institute for Advanced Studies in Culture at the University of Virginia, where I am working on my second book, Confident Pluralism.
