Professor of Law and Associate Dean for International Affairs, Wake Forest University

I have over a decade of experience in the legal academy teaching legal research and writing, environmental law, and animal law. My scholarship focuses on environmental, food, and animal law and policy, and I have published numerous articles on these topics. My second book Our Plastic Problem and How to Solve It (Cambridge University Press) was published in March 2022.
