). Resh earned his doctoral degree at the American University’s School of Public Affairs in 2011.

While his research covers a wide array of governance topics (e.g., executive politics, organization theory, street-level bureaucracy, goal conflict, and contracting), a common theme is how administrative structure, political environments (and institutional conflict), and inter- and intra-organizational relationships affect the decision calculus of the individuals within organizations tasked with public policy implementation.
His work has been published in peer reviewed journals such as the Journal of Public Administration Research and Theory, Public Administration Review, Presidential Studies Quarterly, American Review of Public Administration, Review of Public Personnel Administration, Review of Policy Research, and the International Public Management Journal and academic presses such as Oxford University Press. Bill also has a forthcoming book entitled Rethinking the Administrative Presidency. Recent work on the Federal Employee Viewpoint Survey has garnered much professional and media attention.
