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 NotesNYU Law ReviewPhilosophy & Public Affairs; SciencePolitics, Philosophy & Economics; and Analysis.

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.

I am currently a law clerk for Judge Jed S. Rakoff in the Southern District of New York. Before clerking, I was a tax associate at Covington & Burling in Washington, D.C.
