I study law and politics, with a special focus on problems of information in public life. My current book project, Democracy Beyond Disclosure, offers a skeptical assessment of the ideal of transparency and a qualified defense of political secrecy.

A graduate of Oberlin College (BA 2007) and Harvard Law School (JD cum laude 2013), I recently completed doctoral studies in political theory in Harvard’s Government Department (PhD 2017), where I was a recipient of the Robert Noxon Toppan Prize for "best dissertation upon a subject of political science." I am currently a postdoc at the University of Michigan Society of Fellows and an affiliated postdoctoral research fellow of the ERC project “Democratic Secrecy: A Philosophical Analysis of the Role of Secrecy in Democratic Governance” at Leiden University.
