Bio


I study immigration enforcement and administrative courts. One of my current projects evaluates how effective county sanctuary policies were at preventing deportations under the Obama administration; another takes stock of the relative impact of the Trump administration's many changes to admission and deportation policy.

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.
