Welcome! I study immigration enforcement and mass adjudication. One of my projects evaluates how effective county sanctuary policies are at preventing deportations; another compares administrative review in immigration proceedings and Social Security disability determinations. 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.
