Ideas:
“  Certain areas of the law are outdated and unfair to workers, creating economic insecurity and greater socioeconomic disparity. Given the current changes in how people work, partially gravitating toward gig work and some shifting toward transient full-time work, solutions to these issues are even more essential. My research and scholarship explore outdated laws negatively impacting workers in our changing world. I have begun with timely research on worker classification and then will address other laws, like the laws governing 401(k) retirement plans, that should be modernized in order to minimize rising economic inequality. The common thread that ties my research and scholarship together is the change in how people work now and how we can better serve the modern worker.  ”
