I am an Assistant Professor of Law at Emory University.  My teaching and research interests include federal income taxation, tax policy, partnership taxation, administrative law, and tax-exempt organizations.  I am particularly interested in how tax law and administration interact with and might vindicate foundational norms like equality, transparency, and antidiscrimination.  My research has been published by or will appear in print from Columbia Law Review, Virginia Law Review, Cornell Law Review, George Washington Law Review, and Tax Notes, and as forum essays from Yale Law Journal, Stanford Law Review, and NYU Law Review.
Before joining the Emory faculty, I clerked for the Honorable William A. Fletcher on the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, and for the Honorable Guido Calabresi on the Second Circuit.  I received a J.D. from Yale Law School, where I served as Managing Editor of the Yale Law Journal and won the Clifford L. Porter Prize in Taxation, as well as the Christopher E. Bergin Award from Tax Notes.  I received a PhD in Classics and Philosophy from Yale University.
