Professor Vieux graduated with a Ph.D. from the University of Kansas in 2010, and began teaching at the University of Central Florida in the fall of 2011. She is primarily interested in the study of young people in the political system. Her research falls within the American politics subfields of political behavior, public opinion, state and local politics, and K-12 education policy.
Professor Vieux teaches both graduate and undergraduate courses, and offers courses online and face-to-face. At the undergraduate level, her course offerings include the politics of sports, research methods, metropolitan politics, education and politics, and political socialization; and at the graduate level, American politics, and conduct of political inquiry.
