“  I am currently working on several law review articles to include (1) Delegating Climate Solutions, forthcoming in Yale Journal of Regulation (2) Regulating Toxic Chemicals Under Environmental Law (with Prof. Bob Percival); and (3) "Regulating Climate Retreat" - addressing managed retreat from coastal zones and how this is destabilizing different areas of property law. I am also working on early-stage products addressing how environmental law can address cryptocurrency mining's climate impacts.  ”
