He is a political theorist whose research and teaching interests range widely over ancient and modern political thought, continental philosophy, contemporary and comparative political theory, and American constitutional law.
His current book project, Living with Frustration: The Quest for a Democratic Citizenship of Perseverance, which builds on his dissertation, examines three related yet distinct aspects of democratic frustration arising from the respective democratic aspirations: mutual respect, popular sovereignty, and progress.
