About the Speaker: Oppenheimer's research primarily focuses on Congress and American political institutions. His primary current interest examines how process changes have affected the ability of Congress to develop energy policy over the past half century. He is co-editor (with Lawrence Dodd) of Congress Reconsidered, the 9th edition of which was published by CQ Press in 2009. Oppenheimer's book, Sizing Up the Senate: The Unequal Consequences of Equal Representation, co-authored with Frances Lee, won the D.B. Hardeman Prize for the best book on Congress. In addition, he has recently worked on projects examining why African-American House members rarely run for the U.S. Senate (with Gbemende Johnson and Jennifer Selin) and analyzing the effect of Iraq War deaths on congressional elections (with Christian Grose). He has been both an American Political Science Association Congressional Fellow and a Brookings Institution Fellow and Guest Scholar.
