[most recent writing: "Progress and Execution," at Public Books]
I research and write about American criminal law (mostly), from both a historical and present-day perspective. As of fall 2014 I will be based at the University of Pennsylvania Law School as a George Sharswood Fellow. I am also a PhD candidate in the History Department at Stanford University and earned a JD from Stanford Law School. During law school, I interned at federal and state public defender’s offices. Before law school, I worked in the nonprofit/arts world. My bachelor’s degree is in history from Princeton University. I grew up in Atlanta, Georgia.
