Welcome to my academic web page. I am the Wachtell Lipton Fellow in Behavioral Law and Economics at the University of Chicago Law School. I am interested in how legal rules affect economic inequality, disparate outcomes, and discrimination. To study these questions, I use a range of empirical methods, collaborate across disciplines, and collect original data. My main research interests are in tax law and policy. My tax research explores the distributional consequences of taxes and the interactions between tax laws and other public policies. Much of my tax research to date seeks to understand the extent to which the distributional consequences of tax laws are more nuanced than conventional wisdom would suggest. Beyond tax law, I conduct empirical research on bias and discrimination in the law in general, largely focusing on the manners in which discrimination can affect employment patterns in law-related professions.
