i work on a wide range of projects that cover a number of subjects and disciplines. i believe there is a symbiotic relationship between researching, teaching, and creating. i believe there is lots of opportunity in the space between traditional disciplines.

some of the things i am most proud of:

currently, i am doing research at MIT and legal engineering for social innovation projects with the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation and BrightHive
