I am an Assistant Professor of Law at Brooklyn Law School, a Schmidt Family Fellow at New America, and a Four Freedoms Fellow at the Roosevelt Institute

Scroll down for more about what I do. 

Pre-order my new book, out in October! 

I work on three main topics.

political economy and democratic values

Our moral values shape the policies and systems that structure our politics and economics.  How should we rethink values like democracy, equality, and freedom in the 21st century?  What are the implications for constitutional values, public narrative, and public philosophy?

inequality, finance, and economic policy

How is the changing economy creating new forms of private power and economic inequality? What does a 21st century economic policy agenda look like? I examine the law, policy, and history of these questions in areas ranging from financial reform to competition policy to social policy,  

regulation, participation, and cities

How can we improve the responsiveness and accountability of governing institutions? What would a more participatory democratic process look like? I explore these questions in context of debates over regulatory reform, administrative law, and democracy at the city level. 

I write and speak about these issues in various places. 

I work with practitioners to design strategies for inclusive economies and democratic institutions.
