I am a sociologist and legal scholar whose work focuses on urban sociology, social policy, property, and human rights. More specifically, I use historical and ethnographic methods to understand the emergence of redistributive social policies that have operated by reallocating rights to use idle resources, rather than via tax and transfer. I received a Ph.D. in sociology from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2018, and am currently a visiting scholar at the American Bar Foundation in Chicago. In 2019 I will teach international law at the Northwestern University School of Law.
