I’m a PhD Candidate in economic development in the Department of Urban Studies and Planning at MIT, and I’m currently working as a research associate with the Work of the Future project based out of MIT’s Industrial Performance Center.

My other research focuses on the legal and institutional bases of post-war industrial policy in the United States. I co-wrote, with Ian Wells, a policy brief on green industrial policy for the People’s Policy Project. I have also done work on housing and land issues in the US and abroad.

I’m a recent graduate of Harvard Law School and am admitted to the Massachusetts Bar. I have coauthored, with Justin Steil and colleagues, amicus briefs in support of lawsuits brought by city governments under the Fair Housing Act. I recently coauthored an article in the Cardozo Law Review resulting from this work.
