I am currently serving as a Visiting Assistant Professor at the University of Illinois College of Law, where I teach criminal law and information privacy law. I received my J.D. from Berkeley Law, where I was a member of the California Law Review. I received my B.A. from the University of Texas at Austin, where I graduated with high honors. I am currently a Ph.D. Candidate in Jurisprudence and Social Policy at Berkeley. My ongoing dissertation uses a combination of qualitative and quantitative methods to examine the implementation of structural reform litigation in American police departments.
I have previously published papers on the law of policing in the Fordham Law Review (forthcoming), the California Law Review, the Brooklyn Law Review, the West Virginia Law Review, the Ohio State Journal of Criminal Law (forthcoming), the Federal Sentencing Reporter (forthcoming) and the Journal of Law, Technology & Policy.
