I'm currently serving as an Assistant Professor for Brigham Young University at the Romney Institute of Public Service Ethics in the Marriott School of Business.
As a researcher, I focus on issues related to public and nonprofit management. Particularly, my interests pull me toward research questions related to organizational accountability, crisis management, ethics, corruption, and misconduct across the sectors.
It is important to me that I try to assist practitioners in improving their experience in individual roles and their organization's overall performance. I believe strongly in teaching and research that bring results, which connect to real issues that individuals and organizations face routinely. I care about improving organizations in regards to efficiency, effectiveness, and equity. Increasingly, I see crises and scandals as a major phenomenon that plagues sector organizations today. It is my hope that I can highlight the importance of needing ethical leaders and governance for troubling times in the present-day and the future.
I love teaching and I see it as a major calling in my life. I teach courses related to public and nonprofit management, an introductory course on the nonprofit sector, and American federal government. I and am prepared to teach a variety of classes in public administration and political science.
