Research Interests:

I study American religious and political history, focusing on the rise of the Religious Right throughout the twentieth century. I'm interested in religious groups outside of mainstream evangelicalism who have played a central role in the Prosperity Gospel, the explosion of religious broadcasting in the United States, as well as how these groups interact with modern American politics. 

I'm also working on a side project on radical historians in the United States in the 1970s, particularly Eugene D. Genovese.
