I am an associate professor at the University of Iowa College of Law.  My scholarship explores how to regulate technologies in a way that reckons with social, economic, and political power.  Focusing on algorithmic accountability, data governance, and information privacy, I evaluate how digital technologies, such as artificial intelligence, challenge regulatory approaches and expose underlying legal values.   

My work has been published or is forthcoming in the Northwestern University Law Review, the Journal of Law & Innovation, the Southern California Law Review, the Berkeley Technology Law Journal and the Stanford Technology Law Review.  My piece on data breaches was selected as a winner of the 2017 Yale Law Journal Student Essay Competition.

I am a cum laude graduate of Harvard Law School, where I was Forum Editor for the Harvard Law Review.  After law school, I was the inaugural fellow in artificial intelligence, law, and policy for UCLA Law’s Program on Understanding Law, Science, and Evidence (PULSE).  I then clerked in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia before serving as a Climenko fellow and lecturer on law at Harvard Law School.  I am admitted to practice law in California and the District of Columbia.  Previously, I worked as a project manager at Harvard University’s Berkman Klein Center for Internet & Society and earned my B.A. with distinction in communication and political science from Stanford University.  

In my free time, I enjoy distance running, cycling on Zwift, crossword puzzles, and ice cream.
