My teaching and scholarship focus on Intellectual Property, Technology Law, Constitutional Law, Privacy and National Security.
I received a LL.M., with honors, from Columbia University School of Law, completing a self-designed program in intellectual property, technology law, and constitutional law. I also hold a J.D., summa cum laude, from American University’s Washington College of Law, and a B.A. from Tufts University.
After graduating from law school, I spent two years as a judicial clerk in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit in New York. I then joined the Washington, D.C. office of Jones, Day, Reavis & Pogue. My work with the firm consisted primarily of appellate work before the U.S. Supreme Court and federal courts of appeals, as well as international arbitration before the World Bank. Among the significant cases litigated during this period were issues of intellectual property and constitutional law, privacy and identity theft.
