I teach history, research the historical impact of technology on privacy law, and work for a civil-rights law firm on disability matters. Formerly, I worked in web development and systems administration at a cancer research center.
My PhD dissertation is focused on the history of law and technology, specifically the impact of technology on privacy law (including concepts like liberty, autonomy, secrecy, confidentiality, and so on).
My teaching is usually related to similar topics (American history, legal history, the history of science, and writing in the context of world history), with an emphasis on encouraging undergraduates to view historical methods, especially the use of evidence and argument, as practical skills to succeed in business and in life.
Additional academic work I have produced is listed on Google Scholar. More informal material is available at in propria persona.
I have written several law-review articles, and I also maintain a more informal online journal on law and technology.
Outside of academia, I also focus on law and technology in various ways. At TRE Legal, a small firm specializing in disability discrimination law, I work on legal research and writing and provide paralegal support.
