I am an assistant professor at UCLA School of Law. I teach torts, information privacy and data protection, and a seminar on law, technology and society.
My research examines the relationship between law, technology, and society. Drawing on resources from computer science, sociology, critical theory, and science, technology and society, I seek to understand how the creation, use, and proliferation of different technologies can interfere with existing legal regimes, and how legal actors can most usefully anticipate or respond to the social effects of new technology. Over the last several years, my research has focused on the effects of machine learning and artificial intelligence on varied legal regimes, including discrimination, policing, credit regulation, data protection, and tort law.
Before UCLA, I was a Postdoctoral Scholar at Data & Society Research Institute, and I’ve held visiting and adjunct positions at Fordham University School of Law, the Yale Information Society Project, Georgetown University Law Center and the Electronic Privacy Information Center. I was also a senior associate in Hogan Lovells, Public Citizen’s Supreme Court Assistance Fellow, a clerk for Hon. Jane R. Roth of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit and Hon. Dolly M. Gee of the Central District of California, and as a Privacy Research Fellow at NYU Law’s Information Law Institute. I received a J.D. cum laude from the University of Michigan Law School in 2011, a M.Eng. in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from MIT in 2005, and S.B.s in Electrical Engineering and Physics from MIT in 2004.
Before law school, I designed circuits.
