I am currently an assistant professor of law at UCLA Law School. Prior to my current position, I was the Earl B. Dickerson Fellow at the University of Chicago Law School.
In a nutsehll: I graduated from Stanford University with a law degree and a PhD in Sociology in 2014. After graduating from Stanford, I clerked on the Northern District of California for the Honorable Claudia Wilken, and on the California Supreme Court for Associate Justice Goodwin Liu. I studied management and legal studies as an undergraduate, earning a BS in Economics from the University of Pennsylvania in 2002. I also hold a MA in Criminology from the University of Pennsylvania.
After graduating from undergrad, I worked for several years as a municipal bonds financial analyst for a multi-national investment bank and for several years as a program coordinator at the Wharton School, my alma mater. Prior to attending law school, I was a Fels Fellow at the Juvenile Law Center in Philadelphia, where I researched diversion practices across the state of Pennsylvania. During graduate school, I spent a summer as an Education Pioneers Graduate School Fellow, working in the special education department of the San Francisco United School District.
