“  I am currently working on several law review articles: (1) a national security and administrative law paper titled "The Administrative and Operational Militaries" that addresses domestic legal governance of the Department of Defense and the existing parallel military structure under the Goldwater-Nichols Act. It addresses the numerous unintended consequences of this two military structure with implications for both national security governance, civilian control over the military, and compliance with environmental laws and regulations; (2) a co-authored administrative law/environmental paper with Prof. Percival entitled Could Official Climate Denial Revive the Common Law as a Regulatory Backstop?; (3) a new paper addressing climate change as a national security issue.  ”
