I’m an Associate Professor of Law and a faculty affiliate with the Department of Politics at the University of Virginia. I’m also a Ph.D. candidate (ABD) in political science at the University of Michigan. My research interests include how institutions impact cooperation and conflict among states. I’m especially interested in the law and politics of migration, and relationships between domestic institutional structure and international behavior. I previously practiced transnational and government enforcement litigation and served as law clerk for a federal appellate judge. I received my J.D. from Northwestern University School of Law and an LL.M. (focus in international law) from Georgetown University Law Center.
