I am an Associate Professor of Law and Political Science at Washington University in St. Louis.

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.

In the 2013-2014 academic year, I am teaching Criminal Law, Religion and the Constitution, and a seminar on the First Amendment in Schools.
