I am a student at Yale Law School, where I serve as a fellow of the Information Society Project, an executive editor of the Yale Journal of Law and Technology (YJoLT) and co-director of the Green Haven Prison Project, as well as the Trumbull College Graduate Affiliate Coordinator.

I completed my PhD and a short post-doc in Mark Gerstein's bioinformatics group in the Department of Molecular Biophysics and Biochemistry at Yale University. I did my undergraduate work at Trinity College, University of Toronto and thereafter spent a year as lead bioinformatics scientist at Affinium Pharmaceuticals in Toronto. Before starting law school, I worked at Brake Hughes Bellermann LLP, preparing and drafting patent applications.

During graduate school at Yale, I was awarded an NSERC PGS-B fellowship. I served as a McDougal Fellow and was elected to both the GSA and the GPSS. I also worked as a sailing instructor at YCYC and founded the Graduate Sailing Society. As an undergraduate, I served as Founding Triad (GGP) of the Trinity College James Bond Society and an executive member of the Lit.

In summer 2008, I was the intern to Judge Timothy Dyk on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, and thereafter worked as a summer associate at Finnegan, Henderson in Washington, D.C.

You can query me on PubMed to see my scientific publications; my writing has also turned up in the Hartford Courant, The Scientist, Nerve, In Posse Review and The New Criterion (see full list). My column Haus Arrest appeared in the Yale Daily News for four years.

I enjoy writing, driving and sailing, but only sometimes in that order.
