Ideas:
“  I am interested in diverse and intersecting identities. From disability to social inequality, I am interested in how social constructs do, should, and should not define us. I am also interested in religion, and especially in new religious movements. I study what we believe, how the law protects that, and how that defines us. Finally, I study how public law (dis)incentivises private sector actors to combat social inequality.  ”
