I am a Furman Fellow at NYU Law, where I study tax law, tax policy, and law and philosophy. My academic work focuses on practical problems that raise hard questions about how resources should be distributed.
My dissertation develops a novel approach to international tax policy, proposing that taxing rights should be allocated not so as to fit pre-existing political allegiances, but so as to bring about fair distributions for individuals. Other work examines how to tax personal injury awards, how to allocate COVID-19 vaccines, and how to measure social welfare when people move in and out of societies.
My work has been published or is forthcoming in Tax Law Review; Tax Notes; NYU Law Review; Philosophy & Public Affairs; Science; Politics, Philosophy & Economics; and Analysis.
From October 2023, I will serve as a Policy Advisor in the Office of Tax Policy of the U.S. Department of Treasury. Before joining NYU, I clerked for Judge Jed S. Rakoff in the Southern District of New York and practiced as a tax associate with Covington & Burling in Washington, D.C.
I received a Ph.D. in Politics from Princeton; a J.D. from NYU, where I was a Furman Scholar; a B.Phil. in philosophy from Oxford; and an A.B. in philosophy (summa cum laude) from Harvard.
