Dr. Christopher S. Kelley

I am currently a Lecturer in the Department of Political Science at Miami University in Oxford, OH, where I teach courses on American Government and the Mass Media and American Politics.

My own research examines issues of presidential power (the Unitary Executive) and in particular, the use of the bill signing statement. My research has appeared in both political science journals and law reviews, as well as in such places as The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The National Journal, as well as in Congressional and Department of Justice Reports.

If you are interested in my research or the data on how many signing statements have been issued, please feel free to email me at the link on the bottom left side of the screen.
