Distinguished Professor of Political Science
Director, UC in DC
Ph.D. University of California, Berkeley, 1975
American Politics, Presidency

I am a professor of political science at UCSD where I have taught since 1977.  I also serve as the director of the campus UC in Washington internship program. Im interested in all aspects of American politics, although in recent years my teaching and research have concentrated on the presidency, political communication and American political history.  When I’m not working, I enjoy time with my family, exploring local deserts, golf (broke 80 once!), and fishing (93 lb Wahoo and 138 lb yellowfin tuna).
