I study law and politics, with a special focus on problems of information in public life. My current book project, Democracy Beyond Disclosure, offers a skeptical assessment of the ideal of transparency and a qualified defense of political secrecy. My scholarly writing has appeared in such journals as the American Political Science Review and the Harvard Journal on Legislation.
A graduate of Oberlin College (BA 2007) and Harvard Law School (JD cum laude 2013), I completed doctoral studies in political theory in Harvard’s Government Department (PhD 2017), where I was a recipient of the Robert Noxon Toppan Prize for "best dissertation upon a subject of political science." In Fall 2018, I will join the Michigan Society of Fellows.
