He recieved his Ph.D. from Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo, Michigan.  Originally from Naples, Florida, Dr. Curry also holds a Bachelor of Arts and a Master of Arts from the University of Central Florida.

Areas of Focus

His primary area of research examines how the methods of selection and retention used to staff State Courts of Last Resort interact with judicial behavior. Specifically, Dr. Curry examines if the various methods of selection have predictable effects on things such as tenure, judicial opinions, and the representative nature of State Supreme Court justices. His work has been published in The Journal of Politics, PS: Political Science & Politics, Justice System Journal, and the Journal of Information Technology & Politics, among others. His book with Michael K. Romano, Creating the Law: State Supreme Court Opinions and the Effect of Audiences, will be out in September 2019 with Routledge. Furthermore, he is working on an extended project that examines how Indigenous Peoples fare before courts.
