Ideas:
“  My interests, both legally and philosophically, concern information. In particular, I explore the philosophical questions - both normative and conceptual in nature - surrounding the legal systems that structure our relationships with and rights in information, broadly construed. This includes intellectual property (copyright, trademark, patent, trade secrets, right of publicity); defamation; privacy; technology (applied ethics, bioethics, information privacy, artificial intelligence); ​freedom of speech; and aesthetics (art, music, expression). Among other things, I am writing a philosophy dissertation on the foundations of intellectual property.  ”
