Ideas:
“  I work on questions related to corporate, contract, and technology law. I am enthusiastic about the opportunities that the availability of large amounts of text and other forms of data create for legal research. A lot of my work explores how methods from economics, statistics, and data science can be leveraged to generate insights from such data that inform and enrich the legal discourse.  ”
