Starting in the Fall of 2017, I will be a PhD candidate in the Department of Philosophy at NYU. I am currently a Visiting Researcher at Harvard Law School. Prior to that, I was a Bigelow Fellow at the University of Chicago Law School (2014-2016), and a faculty affiliate at the Berkman Center for Internet & Society. For four years I’ve also been a teaching fellow for CopyrightX, a free online copyright course offered by Terry Fisher at Harvard Law School.
I earned a JD from Harvard Law School, magna cum laude, and a BA in philosophy from UCLA, summa cum laude. Prior to attending Harvard, I worked on Google’s Global Ethics and Compliance team for three years. I’ve also spent time at the Federal Trade Commission, Facebook, Keker & Van Nest, and Jenner & Block’s Washington D.C. office. Immediately prior to becoming a Bigelow Fellow, I clerked for the Honorable Chief Judge Diane P. Wood of the United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit.
I’m a lover of books (book culture, book history, books-as-objects, etc.) and reading (my Goodreads profile is here and you can see my 2017 Reading Challenge progress here), cyclist (most recent big ride was from Glacier National Park to Yellowstone), and very amateur calligrapher/painter/snail mail enthusiast. I used to be a big Yelp! reviewer until they retroactively took away my elite status for the previous year when I failed to write enough reviews to merit elite status the following year (this experience also goes some way toward explaining my interest in property, as does a story involving Neopets circa 2003 that I’ll save for another time). At one point I had the highest score on Galaga at the Westwood Arcade; it was a big deal.
