Research Areas

Research Areas
My research interests are rather broad and varied.  Much of my focus over the course of my career lies in the area of what are called complex adaptive systems (CAS).  CAS refer, in the case of social sciences, to systems that have multiple interacting components and exhibit complex nonlinear behaviors that can be difficult to predict.  The most recent example of my research is seen in the edited volume with colleague Douglas Kiel entitled Complexity in the Social and Behavioral Sciences: Theory, Method, Application (2021).  This contribution is the latest in a line of research in this area going back to the early 1990s.  Other related methodological and epistemological aspects of this research include questions involving computability issues involving CAS and the possible utility of non0standard logics in evaluating such systems.
Related areas of interest, much of which fit within the CAS framework, involve questions surrounding the interplay of political and economic dynamics and institutions.  Prior research has included examining the dynamics of election outcomes, public opinion, the role of technological change in shaping political outcomes and public policy, and other areas.  I am especially interested in how social media shapes political attitudes and behavior and how social media influences and shapes cultural conflict.
Other areas of research include criminal justice policy and attitudes toward what is often referred to as criminal justice reforms, and also whether such reforms have had an impact on crime and criminality.  One possible project I am exploring with colleagues would examine voter attitudes in select jurisdictions toward "progressive" prosecutors and district attorneys.
While not a comprehensive narrative of my research areas, the above captures in broad terms most of my academic interests.  I consider myself intellectually curious and envision other possible avenues for research in the coming years.

Additional Information

Personal Statement
I am Professor of Public Policy and Political Economy, and Political Science, in the School of Economic, Political and Policy Sciences at the University of Texas at Dallas.  I have taught at UT Dallas since 1991.  Prior to my employment by the University, I taught at Virginia Tech, the University of Oklahoma and the University of Georgia.  Regarding my educational background, I received my PHD. from Duke University in 1987; prior to that, I had matriculated at Virginia Tech and Radford university.
My research interests have tended to focus on the application of complex adaptive systems and nonlinear dynamics to understanding economic, political and social phenomena.  My research statement goes into somewhat greater detail regarding these concepts.  However, I do have a fairly wide range of research interests within that broad theoretical framework, and have published extensively addressing topics of public opinion, political support and a range of public policy issues. 
During my tenure at UT Dallas I have served in a number of administrative positions, including director of the Master of Public Affairs (MPA) program, and associate dean for both undergraduate and graduate studies within the School.  My last appointment was as associate dean for undergraduate studies, serving from 2013 to the end of 2019. 
I have taught at both the undergraduate and graduate level, with courses ranging from introductory classes in American and Texas government to undergraduate public policy and graduate courses in political institutions.  Additionally, I have supervised a number of dissertations (details available on this website) and served on a very large number of dissertation committees.
