Welcome! I'm a former immigrants' rights attorney and a postdoc at Stanford. I study administrative law and immigration enforcement. One of my current projects considers whether the government should prioritize the deportations of people convicted of crimes; another measures the effects of the Trump administration's most significant changes to immigration policy and concludes that the administration restricted legal admissions much more than it increased deportations.


From 2016 to 2019, I worked as an attorney at the American Civil Liberties Union Immigrants’ Rights Project in New York, where I helped litigate challenges to the Trump Administration’s use of immigration detention, its arbitrary revocation of DACA grants, and its Muslim Ban.
